The Python ecosystem is supported by some pillars that are
- theoretical material,
- and language itself.
In this talk I would like to reflect on each of these pillars of the ecosystem
What are the priorities and in terms of quality what are the vulnerabilities of each of them.
I will mention the importance of all but focus on the quality of the ecosystem of libraries, tools and theoretical material.
The reflection will be around answering some questions:
- How to maintain the quality of libraries published in PyPI?
- What are the biggest vulnerabilities and how can we help avoid the risks?
- The importance of quality theoretical material (generated by the community)
- Can we trust everything that is available in PyPI?
- Are ecosystem teaching and documentation approaches safe, inclusive and easy to assimilate?
- What can we do to help solve the problems identified?
I will present some real cases and examples of problems encountered and security issues involving mainly PyPI
