     I'm okay with talks by developers working for
commercial Python software in this respect.

     A simple walk through an API is pretty much
     But commercial development groups do some
eye-opening stuff, and having someone explain
cool stuff is cool, For example:
* techniques and tool chains can be inventive
   and helpful
* PyDoc: it's right there and still is badly
   underused. If there's a way to get coders or
   someone connected with the coding team to
   comment properly would be wonderful to know.
   Perhaps re-evaluating the nice lady who knows
   how to spell (the technical writer) could edit
   and therefore enforce proper comments and
   develop copy-and-paste type phrases and maybe
   paragraphs for common classes and functions.
* Python styles and especially reasons for breaking
   the rules.
* Rules of thumb for evaluating licensing.
* A Python-specific use of agile and scrum work.
* QA tricks for detecting circular dependencies
   and other subtle miseries.
