Michael Kennedy (@mkennedy) returns to the show to talk about Pydantic, a Python library that works with data validation and settings management using Python type annotations. Michael joined us previously to discuss Python’s async and await implementations and we are excited to have him back to dive more into all things Python. Michael is a Python and MongoDB enthusiast, has two amazing Python podcasts (Talk Python to Me and Python Bytes), is a trainer, entrepeneur and a Python Software Foundation Fellow. On his website training.talkpython.fm, you can find training videos on Python, DevOps, Front End development and API creation, and more! If you are a beginner just jumping into Python, or even an advanced Pythonista, we highly recommend following Michael and checking out his podcasts and websites. Enjoy the show!
