For the last five years, software development has undergone a dramatic shift away from statically-typed, compiled languages towards dynamic languages like Python. Proponents of Python claim that the language is easier to learn than Java or C# and enables faster development cycles with more transparent code. Entrepreneurs can deliver products to market faster and respond quicker to market changes. Developers can stop fighting with IDE's and get to see their families on the weekends. Everyone wins.

Learn from the early adopters. New technologies involve risk, pain, and a learning curve. Avoid the most disastrous mistakes, and learn how to quickly reap compelling benefits by hearing war stories from early adopters.

Hear from founders who are risking it all. Thinking about a new startup? Wondering if Python makes sense? Hear from founders who decided to bet the farm on Python.

Understand what's coming down the pipeline. It's not enough to understand where Python is today. You also need to understand where Python will be tomorrow.
