Speaker: Jeremy Reichman

Whether you are already comfortable with Bash or AppleScript or Automator, or just want to learn more about scripting in general, there are practical reasons to use Python. Python is both approachable and different than some other languages available on macOS. You can write scripts just as quickly and end up with code that is easily reused and maintained over time. Python is a well-rounded language that is accessible to beginners, yet powerful enough for experts to use in large applications such as Munki and AutoPkg.

We will start small with some introductory Python concepts ? outlining some key language features that help explain why you would want to use Python and work our way up to more complicated real-world examples.
