2) Podcast – From Talk Python to Me Podcast

Episode #211: Classic CS problems in Python

Summary from the Podcast website:

“Many of you studied computer science at a University to get into programming and your careers. But I bet most of you came through some self-study or some sort of back door into the industry. I count myself among that crowd. 

This is one of the true bright spots of our industry. That we can earn our way in without necessarily getting college degrees. But sometimes that academic formalism would come in handy. That’s where David Kopec’s book comes in super handy. It’s an approachable and quick into to CS and that’s our topic on this episode.”

Summary from the Podcast website:

“”This week’s show is a long one, thanks to both Google I/O and Microsoft Build happening this week. We kick off with news from I/O about local processing and gesture controls before digging deep into what it means that Google is killing its Works with Nest program. We explain what it means for consumers, the industry, and for developers. From there we move to the privacy one can expect in Amazon’s Echo products and generally what Amazon knows about you. We also talk about the new Amazon Blink XT2 indoor/outdoor wireless camera. The enterprise gets a lot of love from Microsoft at Build with new conversational talents, a way to migrate old embedded devices to the modern Windows 10 IoT OS and support for robots and Windows 10 IoT. We end with news bits including an update on Bluetooth’s success and an update on the lawsuit over landlords installing smart locks. I also review Wyze Sense sensors.”
