Ep.7 – Michael Kennedy from talkpythontome will talk python to us [ENG]

Questa é una puntata speciale, avremo un ospite straniero e abbiamo deciso di farla in inglese, dopo l’introduzione classica in italiano. Speriamo che la cosa sia di vostro gradimento, visto lo spessore dell’ospite.

Aspettiamo il vostro feedback, in caso di molte richieste potremmo anche pensare a un doppiaggio. Buon divertimento!

This episode is in English, after the intro in italian (skip to 1’30”).
