I think I just heard @Yhg1s suggest that we could avoid Py4K by swapping to Calver 👀👀👀

🎵CUCKOO🎵 Who's excited for the 2024 PyLadies Auction?! What will you bid on? What did you donate?

The Auction is sold out, so if you have your ticket (check the back of your badge if you're not sure!), come on up to Ballroom A on the 3rd floor of the convention center. Doors open at 6:45!

I've commissioned this algorithmically embroidered bag by the amazing Marie Roald and Yngve Mardal Moe!

"This lined corduroy bag is embroidered with a retro computer graphics inspired starscape with two light sources that light up the Python logo and surrounding asteroids. The pattern was made by simulating 2D raytracing using Python and TurtleThread."

Check out their poster session! Sunday, 10am - 1pm in Expo Hall A
https://us.pycon.org/2024/schedule/posters/list/

Another angle of the bag.

@baconandcoconut @pycon And the algorithmically embroidered bag went for $550! 🎉🔥

Friends, don't let friends package alone. Come learn about how we are helping scientists make their software better by demystifying the packaging ecosystem . Whether you are a new or seasoned packager this talk is for u. My first pycon main track talk is today at 1030 am in hall c. I'm nervous ! I need friends to get me through 😅 @pyOpenSci

@hugovk@mastodon.social avatar

@leahawasser @pyOpenSci Excellent talk! 👏 I recommended the guide just yesterday to someone who's never packaged anything and wanted to publish a simple CLI.

Photos from Thursday:

Pierogis at Market Square, delicious, like small cheese and onion pasties!

Jazz statues in Pittsburgh

Michael Winser and @sethmlarson giving a talk on the State of Python Supply Chain Security. I'm familiar with Seth's excellent work as Security Developer in Residence, very interesting to hear Alpha & Omega's cross-ecosystem approach.

I recommend the Jackie O cake. Go find Christos just for dessert! Only $3, your money back if you don't like it!

I just kicked off PyCon 2024 with the first talk of the Language Summit (and my first talk at PyCon!): "Should Python adopt CalVer?" It was an interesting discussion, let's see!

The view of the language summit from the lectern.

@jarofgreen The Language Summit isn't recorded, but there'll be a blogpost, and if we go ahead there'll be a PEP and discussion thread.

@tintvrtkovic The cost of YY.x is likely too high for the benefits, and 3.YY was well received.

Does anybody know how to suppress search highlighting on https://docs.python.org/? It really annoys me. For example if I search for re.match, the re documentation will then look like someone threw confetti all over it.
Reloading the page is my current workaround, but I prefer having it done automatically.

@hugovk@mastodon.social avatar

@adi You can hit the Esc to clear the search highlighting on https://docs.python.org

Planning my veg-ish eating for

Rosewater Middle Eastern looks like it has good veg options and Arepittas looks like it probably does too.

ShadoBeni also looks really good, though it's a bit of a walk from the conference center.

Folks eating vegan/vegetarian this trip: found any other eats that look promising?

(Editing to also add the not-officially-recognized but widely used hashtag as well 🤫)

@treyhunner I had a meat dish but Nicky's Thai Kitchen was good and they have lots veggie and vegan: https://nickysthaikitchen.com

It's REALLY weird to me when people in software mine research papers for their content and say "researchers" instead of naming the scientists who actually did the work they're using. We're human beings and our work is our livelihood (at a fraction of yours I might add). Name us.

Blessed for the community around me that has this value, side eye at the content engine that doesn't.

🐍🧪 Python 3.13.0 is due out in October 2024 and work is underway to implement experimental support for PEP 703 "Making the Global Interpreter Lock Optional in CPython".

As the Steering Council noted in their acceptance of the PEP, to succeed it's important to have community support.

I wrote a little guide on how you can help test out the beta in your project, and help us find bugs in CPython:

@neutrinoceros It's a good question 👍 Yes, I think so, to give exposure to as much code as possible. At this early stage, single-threaded performance will be worse, but CI testing can help find bugs. I "accidentally" found a couple with a PR that had nothing apparently related.

@neutrinoceros I think this is the right place to report it: https://github.com/deadsnakes/issues

Weather for looking decidedly not amenable to outdoor socializing. Boooo.

@bitprophet Nicky's Thai Kitchen has covered outdoor seating and good food. It's quite close to the venue.

@bitprophet I think I saw B&B this evening, with the little greenhouses outside. They did look cosy :)
