Python virtualenvs talk

I had the pleasure of giving a talk about Python virtual environments at this week's Christchurch Python meetup. It described the problem that virtualenvs solve, some gotchas and the tools people use to create and manage them. We also spent some time on some of the newer entrants in this space including pew, pipenv and poetry. The slides are available.

Giving presentations is a great way of solidifying your knowledge of a particular subject - you want to make sure you're describing things accurately so end up doing extra research and thinking more deeply. I'm sure I get as much out of preparing for a talk as the people who attend.

pew is rapidly becoming my preferred virtualenv tool (over virtualenvwrapper). It feels a little cleaner to use and some nice touches.
