Upon my introduction to the world of Python programming I became painfully aware of the term “dependency management”. By trial and much error, itself the fruit of exploring the realm of the OSX Terminal application, I broke my stuff many times. In 2016, I delivered a lightning talk on virtual environments at a Boston Python User Group meeting. Since that time, I’ve experimented with Homebrew and am now using Minconda-Anaconda. I will be writing about my experiences in detail over the next few weeks. If there’s anything in particular you want to know about, please drop me a line: @stephaniemdavis.
