Effective Python package management (Devon Bernard). This talk showcases various example scenarios around the ins/outs of managing Python packages. Scenarios range from intra-package problems of how to build a package, inter-package problems of how to connect packages, to general usage/environment/setup problems that developers have a hard time debugging. For each of these scenarios, I'll highlight the pros/cons, best practices, and how to overcome the issues developers commonly face.
Some examples: - installing packages from public, local file system, git (ssh + https), and how this affects deployment procedures - handling systems with multiple Python versions or package managers - how app structures and imports can affect testability - relative vs absolute imports - virtual environments - setup scripts - package versioning (why, when, how) - how new code changes could not be taking effect (old .pyc files, or updated import not catching) - handling sub-packages/dependencies that utilize parent configuration files - working with PYTHONPATH - executing python as modules or scripts
