Never Write Shell Scripts Again

I recently gave a talk at the Christchurch Python meetup which discussed the strengths and weaknesses of shell scripts, and why you might want to consider using Python instead of shell scripts. I went into some areas where Python is arguably worse than shell scripts, and then we dived into the excellent Plumbum package which nicely addresses most of those weaknesses.

The slides for the talk are available here.
