Episode 0 Postscript Show Notes: pythonoutloud.com/episode0postscript

While we create Episode 1, this Episode 0 Postscript answers some of your questions, discusses our plans for the show, and announces our first giveaway!

In addition, Isaiah shared some stories from PyCascades (https://www.pycascades.com/), a regional Python conference held in Canada in January 2018. At PyCascades, Isaiah even gave a Lightning Talk announcing Python Out Loud to nearly 400 audience members: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrzfSU-8zVY&feature=youtu.be&t=24m50s

We recommend watching all of the other amazing talks, as well: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtWI06j1EADmEOGj2iJhSyA

Also, while explaining why we started with Episode 0 and not Episode 1, Isaiah told us about a controversial topic in mathematics. So controversial, in fact, it involves fistfights! (Please encourage Isaiah to tell us more about the fight. Was he a participant? Were calculators involved?)

And finally, Isaiah took the opportunity to thank friend of the show, Michael Kennedy, for now only mentioning Python Out Loud in Python Bytes Episode 62, but also generously donating several Talk Python 2018 Annual Course Bundles. Follow us on Twitter as @PythonOutLoud (https://twitter.com/pythonoutloud) to find out how you can win a Course Bundle.

This episode features the song "Happy Ukulele" by Scott Holmes and the songs "And So Then" and "Puzzle Pieces" by Lee Rosevere.

Thank you for your support, and stay tuned for Episode 1. We plan to discuss problem solving in Python, focusing on the so-called FizzBuzz Challenge.
