Open source Python and Rust developer, maintainer of Pydantic and other libraries.
Samuel recently founded Pydantic Services Inc. to build great developer tools by applying the same principles that have made Pydantic so successful.
Pydantic is a data validation library for Python that has seen massive adoption over the last few years - it's used by major datascience and ML libraries like Spacy, Huggingface and jinja-ai - overall Pydantic is downloaded over 50m times a month!
In this talk Samuel Colvin, the creator of Pydantic will cover two subjects which have seen massive interest in recent years:
- How Pydantic can be used to prepare data for processing thereby saving time and avoiding errors
- The emergence of Rust as the go-to language for high performance python libraries - how this might go in the future, and the benefits and drawbacks of the trend
