PyCon.IT 2022

At the beginning of the month, I made a quick road trip down to Florence for this year’s edition of PyCon Italia. I try to never miss a chance for a conference I can *drive* to, and Tuscany is just such an awesome place to visit, it really was a no-brainer.

The organizers have been throwing conference for a number of years so everything was smooth and organized. Everyone was asked to wear a mask when inside in the hallways and lecture rooms, which was perfectly fine as there were lots of tables outside to sit and chat. The food was obviously fantastic, as one would expect.

I gave a re-vamped version of my Don’t Rely On Discipline talk, evangelized the use of nix-shell, had long discussions about tech and business with Justin about Fortressa and Pareto Security, and found two nice little utilities that I have already added to my toolkit:

  • flake8-ensure-ascii -> ensure your codebase only includes ASCII characters and as such prevent supply-chain side-channel attacks,
  • pyupgrade -> auto-format your Python files according to the latest style recommendations.
