Chapter: Welcome to the course
Lecture: Meet your instructor: Michael Kennedy
0:00 you met me at the beginning, but I didn't really get a chance to introduce myself.
0:02 Hey there, my name is Michael,
0:05 I'm so excited that you're taking this course with me.
0:08 As you can probably tell, I'm psyched about htmx and how it works with
0:11 Python. A little bit of my background and contact info.
0:14 If you want to get in touch with me,
0:15 you can find me over on Twitter where I'm
0:17 @mkennedy. I host the Talk Python to Me Podcast as well as co-host the
0:23 Python Bytes Podcast. You may have heard of both of these. And I'm also the
0:27 founder and one of the principal authors right here at Talk Python Training.
0:31 So I've been doing a lot of stuff in Python,
0:33 both in writing code, as well as interviewing the thought leaders in the Python community and
0:38 I can tell you many of them are excited about htmx.
0:41 Speaking of thought leaders, I actually interviewed Carson Gross back on episode 321 about htmx,
0:48 of course. He is the creator and maintainer of htmx and
0:51 he's also super excited about what it has offered and how the Python community is adopting
0:55 it. If you want to get the full story and the history and whatnot,
0:58 this interview is really, really interesting,
1:00 it's about an hour long, jump over to talkpython.fm/321 and
1:04 put it on your podcast player, and learn a little bit more about htmx and it's background.
