  • Venmo @ Graduation
    By: Josh Martin
    Experience Level: Novice
    Length: 30 Minutes

    In search of good memes, emojis, and a quick scheme to make fast cash: I decided to put an LED Matrix into my college graduation cap. While making some missteps along the way, I learned a lot of valuable lessons including how to retrieve data from websites easily and regularly (even if they do not want you to), sourcing and evaluating hardware components, and connecting everything using plain Python. I will describe my experience going from a complete beginner to an expert as I step into the next phase of my life, making my mother proud along the way.

  • zoneinfo: A stunning module of exceptional quality
    By: Paul Ganssle
    Experience Level: Intermediate
    Length: 45 Minutes

    Python 3.9 introduces the `zoneinfo` module, which brings concrete time zone support to the standard library. In this talk, I'll discuss the history of time zone support in Python, make the case for migrating your code to `zoneinfo`, and hopefully give you an understanding of everything you'll need to know to successfully make use of the new module.
