We're planning two talks for tonight's event. Both are really great topics and we're happy to
Jeremy Bowman will give a talk: "Managing Python Package Dependencies"
Summary: How to handle dependencies on other Python packages in a maintainable manner, and how this differs for Django applications vs. projects.
Aaron Beals will give a talk: "Tales of the GDPR Avengers: How to respect individual privacy and still ship code"
Summary: In ~10 minutes, I’ll give an overview of what GDPR is, what it means for Django developers, share a few helpful resources, and answer questions. Fair warning: I am not a lawyer.
