In this digital age, there is still some use for having messaging that is easy to distribute and consume. While it may seem quaint and old-fashioned, hard-copy content is a useful way to deliver information at events like conferences and meetups.
What’s new in Python brochure
This is not the first time the Marketing team has put together something like this; the team designed and released a more retro-looking edition for Pycon 2013. The new edition of the brochure is consistent with the Fedora Project’s branding and design, and has been updated with some cool new facts, including:
- DNF, the software installation and dependency tool within Fedora, is built with Python and supports Python 2 and 3.
- Inkscape, GIMP, and Blender include Python support, so you can script all sorts of graphics plugins in Python.
- Fedmsg, Bodhi, Koji, and the Fedora Account System are some of many Python-built apps within Fedora’s infrastructure.
Fedora’s relationship with Python is very close, and has been since 2003. The ease in which developers can work with Python tools like PyPy, PyDev, Winpdb, and GitPython (to name a few) makes Fedora a very useful platform for coders–and we are very happy to be able to show some of that off.
Be sure to look for Fedora at PyCon in Portland, Oregon next month, or visit the Python resources in this article, to learn more about using Fedora as your Python platform of choice!
