Figuring Out Which Giants' Shoulders to Stand On

16 mins by The Python Experience |

We all stand on the shoulders of giants. We are always in a game of capturing our ideas, connecting the dots between these new ideas and prior works, and layering up a greater picture over time, which in some peoples' cases constitute a life's work. Python itself is such a product of both Guido van Rossum and the ABC team he was a part of that came before Python. Their collective work constitutes a Samurai Sword of the modern information technology world. We are unique expressions using the product of other unique expressions to create our own new product. So why not expose this process and create some connections with like-minded folks dealing with similar problems and issues in life, and start knit together a little tribe.
