Description

Eric Anderson (@ericmander) welcomes Peter Wang (@pwang) for a conversation about the Python ecosystem and the open-source communities that have built it. Peter is the creator of Anaconda, the near-essential Python distribution for scientific computing that makes managing packages a lot more manageable. In today’s episode, Peter offers a unique and powerful perspective on how to make the economics of open-source work for everyone.


In this episode we discuss:



  • The paradox of the PVM and Python’s packaging difficulties

  • How Guido van Rossum implied permission for Anaconda and the open-source Python movement

  • Python as the lingua franca of a new professional class

  • Looking to Roblox for inspiration for a scientific computing creator community

  • Giving back to open-source communities through the NumFOCUS Foundation
