The biggest Python conference in Europe was held last week in Basel, Switzerland. The EuroPython conference is a great place to meet Pythonistas and learn new things. Check out my list of 20 best talks from the conference. You can watch all of them on YouTube.
With over 120 talks and 6 parallel tracks, its not possible to see all the best talks. The conference app allows attendees to rate each talk and I compiled these ratings to make a list of the 20 talks which were best received at the conference.
It’s impossible to pick the great talks from EuroPython without leaving some cool talks out. The list above includes the top-rated talks, which had at least 15 ratings in the conference app. Unfortunately this means that some great, but less attended talks did not make the list.
If you would like to watch more, here are a few other highly-rated talks in no particular order.
