Hi! I recently moved to a python-heavy environment and was surprised at the variety of ways to build the projects. Now I'm exploring what tools are available for that, that work with python

Hello 🙂 I was searching for a tool that will allow me to build mostly python code (pyspark, lambda functions, libraries) in monorepo setup. After having some issues with python wheels I started looking at PEX files, so Pants seems to be a good fit :)

Btw! Y'all are invited to fill out this survey to help us prioritize for 2022. It's okay that you're still new to using Pants (you have a particularly useful perspective because of that). You don't have to vote on every question also We'll likely close the survey tomorrow (Monday)

Hello 🙂 I also recently joined an org with a python-heavy environment and coming from java background things definitely look different (and interesting) here. Looking forward to explore more good stuff here. 🙂

Hi! First of all, thank you for helping me yesterday. I’m a machine learning engineer, and recently I’ve been thinking about developing Python applications in monorepo setup. So while I was considering bazel and others, this blog and this one led me to start exploring Pantsbuild. I really like the fact that not only is it a great tool, but the support is very generous.

Hi, I am Tzanko, CTO of Santiment. We are a company doing analytics of cryptocurrency data. I am exploring ways to improve our build system for our Python applications. Currently we package Python code in Docker and run it on Kubernetes. We use Jenkins as a CI. We use one project per repository. I hope that maybe we can use Pants to unify our build infrastructure, improve testing and increase development speed.
