  1. What I learned from 100 days of rejection | Jia Jiang

    Jia Jiang adventures boldly into a territory so many of us fear: rejection. By seeking out rejection for 100 days — from asking a stranger to borrow $100 to requesting a "burger refill" at a restaurant — Jiang desensitized himself to the pain and shame that rejection often brings and, in the process, discovered that simply asking for what you want can open up possibilities where you expect to find dead ends.

  3. Paul Ganssle - Working with Time Zones: Everything You Wish You Didn’t Need to Know - PyCon 2019

    "Speaker: Paul Ganssle

    Time zones are complicated, but they are a fact of engineering life. Time zones have skipped entire days and repeated others. There are time zones that switch to DST twice per year. But not necessarily every year. In Python it's even possible to create datetimes with non-transitive equality (a == b, b == c, a != c).

    In this talk you'll learn about Python's time zone model and other concepts critical to avoiding datetime troubles. Using dateutil and pytz as examples, this talk covers how to deal with ambiguous and imaginary times, datetime arithmetic around a Daylight Savings Time transition, and datetime's new fold attribute, introduced in Python 3.6 (PEP 495).

    Slides can be found at: https://speakerdeck.com/pycon2019 and https://github.com/PyCon/2019-slides"

  5. How to disagree productively and find common ground | Julia Dhar

    How to disagree productively and find common ground | Julia Dhar

Drawing on her background as a world debate champion, Julia Dhar offers three techniques to reshape the way we talk to each other so we can start disagreeing productively and finding common ground — over family dinners, during work meetings and in our national conversations.

In this talk, she describes two ways to think about a problem that’s slightly too hard for you to solve. Are you not smart enough to solve it … or have you just not solved it yet? A great introduction to this influential field.
