Python is growing incredibly quickly and has found its place in many facets of the developer and computational space. But one area that is still shaky and uncertain is packaging and shipping software to users.
I'm not talking about building reusable libraries and hosting them on PyPI. I'm talking about shipping executable software to non-developers.

On this episode, we welcome back Cristian Medina to run through the state if Python packaging.
