7:30pm: Introduction to Type Hints by Björn Andersson

Björn has recently learned about Type Hints (see https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0484/) and discovered that they can be of tremendous help when refactoring large code-bases. He will show us how you can make use of them today, by integrating them into your IDE and gradually including them into your codebase, one module at a time.

8:00pm: Pipenv, in Brief by Nicholas WL Koh

Pipenv is a packaging tool that brings concepts from other bundlers (e.g. npm) to the Python world. We'll walk through a simple workflow, contrasting it with Virtualenvwrapper.

Nick wishes he took CS instead of Business classes back in his University days (which weren't too long ago). He is currently building tools for the events industry, such as www.wedever.co.
