Using Python instead of bash

See Bashing the Bash — Replacing Shell Scripts with Python for some concrete examples of stuff you can do in Python or the shell.

And yes, it's a good, workable idea. 

1. It's unit testable.
2. It's easier to read.
3. It may be faster. Not that you'd notice unless you've really made a terrible mistake and written some gigantic application as a shell script.

While you're at it, check out the overall blog: https://medium.com/capital-one-tech. There's a lot going on.

You do need to get your tickets ASAP. The schedule is fabulous.

Hotel rooms are still available, so don't waste any time getting connected.
