It’s been quite the year! The Real Python team has written, edited, curated, illustrated, and produced a mountain of Python articles this year. We also upgraded the site and membership with office hours, transcripts, this podcast, and much more.

We are joined by two members of the Real Python team, David Amos and Joanna Jablonski. We wanted to share a year-end wrap-up with a collection of articles that showcase a diversity of Python topics and the quality of what our team created this year.

Joanna and David help to shepherd articles through the multi-stage editing process. They make sure articles not only impart crucial Python knowledge but also provide a thorough didactic experience.

We hope you enjoy this review and as a programming note, there won’t be an episode next week, but we will be back the following week, and look forward to bringing you a year full of great guests, topics, articles, and projects.
