Episode 185: 2023 Real Python Tutorial & Video Course Wrap-Up

The Real Python Podcast

Dec 29, 2023 53m

Three members of the Real Python team are joining us this week: Kate Finegan, Tappan Moore, and Philipp Acsany. We wanted to share a year-end wrap-up with tutorials, step-by-step projects, code conversations, and video courses that showcase what our team created this year.

Kate helps to shepherd articles through the multi-stage editing process. She and the rest of the team ensure these resources impart crucial Python knowledge and provide a thorough didactic experience. Kate was also instrumental in helping introduce a new group of tutorial authors to the Real Python editorial process and house style.

Philipp returns to the podcast after our conversation earlier this year, and it was great to talk to him about onboarding new video instructors. Tappan edits all our video courses and ensures that the sound, picture, and animations are just right. He also helped provide feedback to the new instructors on our video creation process.

We hope you enjoy this review! We look forward to bringing you another year full of great guests, articles, and topics.
