As lead for PyLadies and co-lead dev of Django Packages / the Packaginator framework, I've witnessed and helped make amazing things happen in the open source community. I'd like to share thoughts on:
Every intermediate to experienced Python developer has code that can be turned into a reusable Python package. There are sneaky tricks to giving people a gentle push to open-source their code, which have the side consequence of making them better developers.
What makes a Python package useful? How can we improve the quality of our own individual packages?
Watching the Django Packages ecosystem and the PyLadies community thrive and grow has given me ideas about how to jumpstart or grow similar ecosystems and communities. How can you steal ideas from these projects and use them as templates for your own Python niches?
