Stop writing crappy shell scripts—write crappy Python scripts instead!
Other talks will show you how to write clean, performant, robust Python. But that's not always necessary. When writing personal automation or solving one-shot problems, it can be safe (and fun!) to quickly hack something together.
This talk will show examples of problems suitable for this approach, scenarios where it's reasonable to cut corners, novel techniques that can help break a problem down, and shortcuts that can speed development.
I would like to work with open source projects to create a branch of the tree with all
of the best videos for your open source project. Please
send me an email if you are interested.
