Topic: Developing a software product, from concept to
release, entirely in Python
by Mike Pittaro of SnapLogic

A soup-to-nuts overview of developing a software
product, from concept to release, entirely in Python.
This touches issues of design, why Python, choosing
modules and technologies, build or buy, hiring, tools,
working with open source, coding style, licensing
decisions, testing, building, packaging and release.

Mike Pittaro started the SnapLogic project in 2005
with the goal of simplifying data integration with a
fundamentally new approach.

Mike has worked in the data analysis and data integration
space for the past 12 years. He built his first financial
data mart in 1996, and later worked on pool selection
analysis for the asset-backed securitization industry.
Mike joined Informatica in 1997, where he worked on product
advocacy and developed the support infrastructure for the
Global Support Organization which used a mixture of
commercial and Open Source software to enable collaboration
and resource sharing across five distributed support centers.
Prior to that he worked in the high performance computer
industry, optimizing Fortran and C programs for massively
parallel computers. Mike graduated from the Sligo Institute
of Technology in 1983.
