Getting Rid Devs Big Pain Points - from automating workflow to managing complex dependency trees

Pete Garcin



Workshop Abstract: In this workshop, we'll explore working with complex project setups in Python and how ActiveState's platform can dramatically simplify your development workflow. We'll look at managing complex dependency trees, managing and sharing development secrets throughout your team and organization, and how to create simple custom distributions for a variety of use cases. ActiveState's ActivePython distribution and the newly launched ActiveState platform provide solutions to these problems in simple and powerful ways. During this workshop, we'll walk through: - How you can use the ActivePython and the new ActiveState platform to have a pre-configured, pre-built environment for many common development tasks and avoid dealing with complex build steps for dependencies. - How to use the new secrets tool to manage, share and use various secrets in your workflow. - A demonstration of how the new ActiveState platform sets you up to solve these problems and more in a simple, powerful manner.
