What a month. June has been very busy. And that’s an understatement. Where shall I start?
Interviews and Podcasts
I was honoured to be invited to two interviews in June.
Mike Driscoll, one of the leading figures in the world of Python communication, kindly invited me as one of the first guests on his new podcast, The Python Show. We talked about a number of topics, including teaching Python to children and adults and my journey through coding.

Next, there’s an interview on The Tech Writers Stack by Alejandro Piad Morffis where I talk a bit more about writing technical articles:
Technical Writing Doesn’t Have to be Boring
I’ve been on a long journey with my technical writing. And I still am. Over time, I’ve shifted more and more to a different style of writing compared to the “classic textbook” style that’s still very common in many areas of technical writing. I’ve done a lot of thinking, reading, and experimentation on this topic over the years.
This month, I decided to start writing about this topic, too.
I kicked this new writing career off with a guest article on The Tech Writers Stack:
- The Different Flavours of Narrative Technical Writing. Why I’m using more storytelling techniques in my Python articles
And I’ve also launched a new Substack where I’ll be writing about my thoughts and views on the topic of narrative technical writing and using storytelling techniques in technical articles:
- Breaking the Rules. My thoughts about narrative technical writing.
This Month’s Articles
And of course, I published a few more articles this month. Here are the latest articles from June on The Python Coding Stack:
- An Object That Contains Objects • Python’s Containers (Data Structure Categories #4)
- Casting A Spell • More Interaction Between Classes (Harry Potter OOP Series #4)
- “You Have Your Mother’s Eyes” • Inheritance in Python Classes (Harry Potter OOP Series #5)
- The Manor House, the Oak-Panelled Library, the Vending Machine, and Python’s __getitem__() [Part 1]
- The Anatomy of a for Loop (Paid article)
And on Breaking the Rules, I published the Pilot Episode of what will be a weekly short post:
July will be a bit quieter, I promise.
