What's up in the python and tech environment? - Issue #59
Welcome to issue #59 of “What’s up in the python and tech environment?”.
This newsletter is mainly intended for developers and those passionate about computers.
This week we will discuss a lot about data science in Python, another attack discovered on PyPI, ADHD developers, Prisma ORM, mrsk a small Kubernetes-like application deployment solution, and more! 😎
From the python world
For those who remember, a couple of weeks ago, I presented this article by the author of FastAPI, showing how to migrate from Flask to its framework. Here is part 3! (If you want to read part 2, you can do it here)

Are you an ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder) developer or do you know one of them? In this blog post, the (ADHD) author discusses the advantages and handicaps that it could bring to the developer’s job.
Developers with ADHD? You are not alone
Prisma, a new generation ORM made a Twitter thread showing new features shipped in version 4.11.0 like the ability to introspect MySQL, SQL Server, and CockroachDB views.
By the way for python developers, you can use Prisma using this excellent library!
In this blog post, David Heineneier Hansson the creator of Ruby on Rails stated that serverless features by cloud providers might not be such a good idea regarding costs and the evolution of an application. What do you think?
Continuing with Hansson here is a Youtube video where he presents mrsk, a small Kubernetes-like tool to deploy an application. It is developed and used by its company to move out of AWS / GCP to its own infrastructure. For the curious, he explains their decision in this blog post. 🙃
An interesting article presenting the concept of immutable (or to be fair, the right term is isolated) operating systems.
