Episode 46: C for Python Developers and Data Visualization With Dash
Feb 05, 2021 44m
Are you interested in building interactive dashboards with Python? How about a project that takes a flat data file all the way to a web-hosted interactive dashboard? This week on the show, David Amos is back, and he’s brought another batch of PyCoder’s Weekly articles and projects.
Along with the Real Python article about data visualizations using Dash, David covers an article designed to help Python developers understand the fundamentals of C. We discuss a couple of articles about Excel and using Python with Microsoft Office.
We also cover several other articles and projects from the Python community including, out-of-memory crashes in Python, updating all packages with pip-review, data science notebooks for teams, and a command-line tool for looking up colors, shades, and palettes.
