Are you curious about utilizing Python in an trade outdoors of software program improvement? Would including a couple of customized software program instruments enhance effectivity and make your coworkers’ jobs simpler? This week on the present, Josh Burnett talks about utilizing Python as a mechanical engineer.

I met Josh at PyCon US 2022 in Salt Lake Metropolis, which he attended for the primary time with a number of coworkers. He recommended we do an episode to shed some gentle on ways in which Python is getting used professionally by individuals who aren’t primarily programming for a residing.

Josh works as a mechanical engineer for an gear producer, the place he must carry out repetitive duties and generate copious logs. He explains how he moved his crew away from MATLAB and towards Python.

We focus on his development from writing scripts to growing packages and ultimately internet hosting his work on PyPI. He additionally shares his explorations with CircuitPython for private {and professional} initiatives.
