[Pyowa] ‘Pex' by Spencer Herzberg at The Forge by Pillar Technology

December 4, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST


Our Topic

Do you struggle to setup and maintain python tool installation across developers machines and servers? Do you wish tool updates were as smooth as a single file replacement? Pex may be the answer you have looking for. Pex is a tool that will generate a single file that contains your python based tools as well as all of its dependencies. Installation becomes as easy as a file copy. This talk will cover how the tool works, how to use it, and some real world examples.
