Python is the 2nd most popular coding language, taking over the old reliables such as Java and .Net. Octoverse reported in 2022 that Python continues to see a surge in its usage across GitHub, experiencing a remarkable 22.5% year-over-year increase. This is no surprise given the advantages Python has.
-It’s easy to learn
-has an impressive library
-It is such a versatile language with a vast spectrum of applications, from Web Development to Automation, Machine Learning, Data Science, and AI
But more importantly, Python has a strong community and fosters collaboration. PyCon conferences are famous around the world with hundreds of Pythonistas attending every year. E-Frontiers has been a regular sponsor of PyCon Spain over the years, but this year we have moved our focus closer to home.
Our Recruitment Operations Manager, Alexandra Pop, has recently attended PyCon Ireland as a speaker. PyCon Ireland was organised by Python Ireland, and it’s now a fixture in the calendar for November. This year’s conference took place at Radisson Blu and the chairperson, Nicolas Laurance, put together a great team of staff and volunteers that delivered an excellent 2 days of networking, workshops, and talks.
PyCon Ireland 2023 featured an extensive and diverse range of talks, covering various Python-related topics. Insights on architecting dashboards and exploring AWS automation. Real-world applications of AI with AWS SageMaker. From Python’s latest updates and improvements to its applications in Quantum Computing and AI, the conference had something for everyone.
