Things not to do in Python (2018)

Python is an amazing tool that can be used to write beautiful expressive code. But sometimes it's easy to shoot yourself in the foot. This talk will NOT focus on things that are listed in "The Little Book of Python Anti-Patterns". Those tips and tricks are already well known.

Instead, in this talk we'll discuss things you don't usually think about that much, but they can easily turn your workday into an 8-hour debugging marathon if you don't know how to use them. Those include exceptions, warnings, logging and more.
