The Adventures of a Snake in the Land of Camels

David Ascher, Chief Technologist, ActiveState

Track: Python
Date: Thursday, July 26
Time: 2:45pm - 3:15pm
Location: Bel Aire North

A little more than a year ago, my employer, a company with a long commitment to the Perl way of life, decided to embrace Python as well. Since that time, appreciation for Python has grown throughout the company in a variety of ways. This growth has occurred as both technical and non-technical people throughout the organization interacted with Python, with Python tools such as Zope and Mailman, and with the Python community. I will present my perspective on the transformation, as an "old Python hand" who got to see Python make its way in what could have been hostile territory, using anecdotes, quotes and some metrics.
