By popular demand, From Python Import Podcast returns from the dead with a brand-new, supersized episode of epicness featuring an in-depth conversation with Jesee Noller, PSF board member, core developer, chair of PyCon 2012 and 2013, and all-around hoopy frood. Over the course of nearly two hours, we get an inside look at the Python Software Foundation, being a core developer, bringing a code of conduct to the Python community, community outreach and diversity, the joys and anguish of running a major conference, how to get involved in Python or PyCon, the work he's doing with Rackspace to inspire developers to build cool things, some Python trivia, and various strategies for discovering and curating collections of animated GIFs.
We'd not only like to thank Jesse for his time and candor, but we'd also like to thank each and every one of you for listening, for subscribing, for tweeting, for saying hello at conferences, for encouraging us to create new episodes again. Every little bit, every interaction--no matter how trivial it might seem--matters. You made this episode happen, and hopefully many more to come. Thank you.
