We’re going to have an AMA session with Kenneth Reitz, in a couple of days. If you identify yourself with the Python community at large; there is a slim chance for you to not have come across the Python library, pulling in over 7,000,000 downloads every month — touted as one of the finest HTTP 1.1 client abstractions ever created — Requests; or the name of the man who’s behind it, Kenneth Reitz.
He is well known for writing code that is, first “for humans”, and then for the machines. This approach is what led to Kenneth’s Documentation is King motto; and the sole reason behind making his code “beautiful”, on use.
Kenneth authored, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Python; an opinionated guide for aiding both novice and expert Python developers, in following the best practices concerning the installation, configuration, and usage of Python on a daily basis.
Being a Python product owner at Heroku, he is responsible for the technical design of Heroku's Python offering, as well as Heroku’s voice in the Python community.
Music, Photography, and Fallibilism
Kenneth is also an established musician, does awesome Photography, is live on Facebook most nights producing great electronic music, and writes some damn good prose that enunciate not only code, but life itself. He identifies himself as a moral fallibilist. In all honesty, I had to google for the word. 😁
A Pythonic Opportunity!
If you have been doing Python for a while, or you’re a budding Pythonista just getting started; don’t miss up on this chance to have your questions answered by the author of the most famous Python library.
Kenneth will be live for 2 hours, on Aug. 3 6PM, GMT to answer all your questions. Questions can be posted in advance. Why don’t ask one now? We'll notify you via email when he answers it. 🙂
