    Dr Russell Keith-Magee is the founder of the BeeWare project, a project developing GUI tools and libraries to support the development of Python software on desktop and mobile platforms. He joined the Django core team in 2006, and for 5 years, was President of the Django Software Foundation. He is a frequent speaker at Python and Django conferences around the globe, sharing his experience as a FLOSS developer, community maintainer, and (unsuccessful) startup founder. In his day job, he is a Princpal Engineer at Anaconda, working on BeeWare in the OSS team.


Python has proven itself to be a powerful tool for data science, and for web servers. However, one area where it hasn't historically been popular is in building applications for end users. In this talk, you'll discover how you can use the BeeWare suite of tools to build a GUI app, and deploy that app on desktop (for Windows, Linux or macOS), mobile (on Android or iOS), and the web - all from a single Python codebase.
