0:00 Finally, before we wrap up this chapter I just want to introduce myself. My name is Michael Kennedy, hello! Here I am, this is what I look like.
0:08 You can find me on Twitter, where I'm @MKennedy. Super excited to be putting this course together for you and happy you're in it.
0:15 So just a little bit about me I run the Talk Python to Me podcast. This is a podcast that's been going for four or five years
0:23 and I interview many of the influential folks in the Python industry, from the people who create Python to people who use it at places like Instagram
0:31 as well as, say, astronomers who are using it to understand the stars. So I have a pretty good spectrum of what people are doing
0:39 and what they're up to with Python and how it's important to them and I'll try to convey that to you.
0:45 Also, I happen to run another podcast called Python Bytes. This is like the weekly news in the Python space
0:50 so if you want to stay up on that, you can subscribe to this. Both of these give me a lot of different sources to draw from
0:57 to share with you throughout this course. Maybe most relevant, though is that I'm the founder and one of the principal authors
1:02 at Talk Python Training, where you're taking this course. So this is me, welcome to the course. I'm happy to be here with you, let's get rolling.
