- Why I don’t like SemVer anymore: A great resource to make you think about what SemVer means and where it falls short.
- What the heck is pyproject.toml: A intro to modern Python packaging

Paul Ganssle is CPython core developer, and maintains zoneinfo. https://blog.ganssle.io
- Why you shouldn’t invoke setup.py directly: The definitive resource for avoiding

Hynek Schlawack also maintains Twisted, Attrs, and lots of things. He’s also interested in DevOps. https://hynek.me
- Semantic Versioning Will Not Save You: You can deduce from the title.
- https://hynek.me/articles/testing-packaging/: A description of why
/srcstructure is so important, with real life examples.
- Subclassing in Python Redux: A huge and fantastic article. While I love subclassing, and I think this might scare younger readers off of the usefulness of subclassing just a bit, it has great design points that are important, even if you subclass (and yes, there are times when that’s best, and the article does point that out).
The Real Python articles are great. Tutorials are paid, but the articles are free.
There are some great podcasts for Python, such as:
- Python Bytes: Audio Python headlines every week, interesting articles and things that pop up, with a random special guest.
- Talk Python to Me: In-depth interviews. Might I recommend episode #338?
- Test and Code: Tests are very important, and here’s a whole podcast dedicated to them!
