PyCon is likely one of the three largest skilled Python conferences in Russia. In 2021, it was held on September 5-6 within the Moscow area. Round 500 builders, together with these working at Evrone, took half in it.
PyCon is held by the IT-Folks profession company, which, because the identify suggests, focuses on recruiting for IT corporations. The distinction between PyCon and different massive Python conferences (Moscow Python Conf and PiterPy) is that it’s a household occasion. It has occasions and leisure, not just for builders, but in addition for members of their households, together with youngsters. Throughout the day, everybody who’s listens to reviews, and within the night there may be an off-the-cuff afterparty by the fireplace, the place company can discuss skilled and not-so-professional matters.
What was our report about?
Evrone’s Python Teamlead, Artyom Innokentiev, gave a presentation on the convention. For him, it was his debut as a speaker at a big and revered convention in the neighborhood. In his speech, Artyom predicted what to anticipate from sample matching within the subsequent model of Python.
This can be a new, long-awaited Python function. Sample matching is utilized in many different languages, nonetheless, Python builders had been cautious of this innovation. For a very long time, they’ve efficiently used different instruments to unravel the issues that sample matching doubtlessly solves. Whether or not this may simplify work and facilitate different features of labor is just not but clear. Artyom tried to reply these questions.
To organize his speech, he spent a number of months digging by way of drafts and discussions and seemed into different languages to make his predictions. In his discuss, he offered the most effective use circumstances for sample matching and demonstrated loads of “timber”.
How we ready
Since this was Artyom’s first speech at a big convention, his extra skilled colleague, Grigory Petrov, DevRel at Evrone, helped him put together the report. He himself gave many shows at PyCon and can also be the organizer of the Moscow Python Conf 2021. Grigory helps our builders attain new ranges by talking at conferences. He has been efficiently doing this for a very long time and has even provide you with his personal methodology for getting ready audio system.
I like to check it to enjoying the guitar. At first, an individual repeats the actions with their fingers each day, and after a month they’ll play lots of the chords. Making ready audio system is identical. The system consists of memorizing easy actions for quarter-hour a day for a month or extra. After which the individual goes on stage and provides a report by themselves.
Whereas this can be a good comparability, the truth is a bit more difficult. Our audio system work in accordance with a particular system of key phrases and don’t see the slides in the course of the speech. We put together the slides for the viewers and use different prompts to assist the speaker. The general method may be damaged down into three steps:
- Repetition. That is one of the best ways to memorize info, such as you did in class. The one distinction is that it’s worthwhile to use a system of key phrases, moderately than memorizing the textual content of the speech.
- View from the surface. This helps you perceive weaknesses and rapidly repair them with out repeating them a thousand instances. You are able to do this by recording your self on video. By repeating this trick a number of instances, it is possible for you to to derive the perfect method to your efficiency.
- Coaching in public. It’s price it to simulate the scenario and attempt to communicate to an viewers: household, pals, colleagues, a cat, and so on. You’ll learn to tackle the viewers and monitor their temper. We at Evrone assist our colleagues with this stage by permitting our audio system to offer their reviews at inner meetups, earlier than they’ve to offer them at conferences.
That is how we put together our audio system for all conferences, not simply PyCon. Our specialists communicate at Highload, Teamlead Conf, and different main occasions. Evrone additionally organizes RubyRussia, the biggest skilled Ruby convention in Russia. Grigory Petrov has been busy getting ready audio system for RubyRussia 2021, which is able to happen on-line September 24-25. This system has already been introduced, and you may watch and register right here.
