The "Samurai" Python Development Environment

Shakthi Kannan (~shakthi)




The development environment for Python is a very important topic that is of interest to a broader audience with different backgrounds and varying experiences. As a Python contributor, one spends at least 8-10 hours a day in front of the computer, and it is important to master the features provided by your text editor or Integrated Development Environment (IDE) to Get Things Done (GTD). In this BoF, I would like to discuss the various aspects that are essential to have mastery over your development interface to be as productive as possible. This will touch upon various aspects of editors not limiting to syntax highlighting, auto-completion, editing commands, file handling, but, also address interaction with version control systems, workflows, time management etc. This will not be a session on comparison of editors, but, the focus is on the tools and techniques available to enhance your Python development experience.
