OSCON Open Source Software Superstream Series: Live Coding—Go, Rust, and Python

Video description

Watch Part 2, OSCON Open Source Software Superstream Series: Cloud Strategies and Implementation.
Watch Part 3, OSCON Open Source Software Superstream Series: Infrastructure.

This three-part series of half-day online events gives attendees an overarching perspective of software development from which to make decisions that strengthen and grow companies and industries, a deep knowledge of key open source technologies to make it happen, and a community in which both they and their companies can thrive.

In Part 1, Live Coding—Go, Rust, and Python, we wanted to get deeper into actual coding, and one way to do that was to outlaw slides. That’s right, these sessions all incorporate live-coding. These four sessions from Ellen Körbes, John Walicki, Nathan Stocks, and Reuven Lerner will walk you through coding best practices and new ways of getting the most out of languages like Python, Go, and Rust.

This event is sponsored by IBM, and features spotlights on Kode With Klossy and the Eclipse Foundation.

About the presenters:

Rachel Roumeliotis is vice president of content strategy at O'Reilly, where she leads an editorial team that covers a wide variety of programming topics ranging from full stack to open source in the enterprise to emerging programming languages. She’s been a programming chair for the O'Reilly OSCON, Fluent, Strata, Software Architecture, and Security Conferences.

Kelsey Hightower has worn every hat possible throughout his career in tech and enjoys leadership roles focused on making things happen and shipping software. Kelsey is a strong open source advocate focused on building simple tools that make people smile. When he isn’t slinging Go code, you can catch him giving technical workshops covering everything from programming to system administration.

Ellen Körbes ran DevRel at both Tilt and Garden—two of the very few companies 100% focused on the development experience side of Kubernetes. They got their start building Kubernetes CLI tooling under SIG-CLI. They've since spoken about Go and Kubernetes at many world-famous events.

Tara Tran is the manager of recruitment and instruction, and Mehreen Butt is an instructor at Kode With Klossy.

John Walicki is the CTO for edge/IoT advocacy in the Developer Ecosystem Group within the IBM Cognitive Applications Group, where he helps developers create custom IoT and embedded Linux solutions for their industrial and educational use cases. As an IBM developer advocate with deep expertise in IoT and edge, he inspires developers to build solutions with the powerful Watson IoT capabilities, Watson AI and IBM Cloud.

Nathan Stocks is an engineering manager of Git storage at GitHub by day; by night he teaches Rust and works on indie game dev projects. He likes maple trees, frisbee, spending time with his wife and kids, eating food, and dreaming about running his own artisan software shop with a small team of smart, happy people.

Mike Milinkovich is the executive director of the Eclipse Foundation.

Reuven Lerner is a full-time Python trainer and author. Reuven’s free weekly Better Developers newsletter, about Python and software engineering, is read by more than 15,000 developers around the globe. His Trainer Weekly newsletter is similarly popular among people who give corporate training.
