This introductory tutorial will teach you how to effectively use modules and packages so your code is easier to read, test, package, deploy, reuse and maintain.

We will cover the basics of structuring your code with modules and packages, ways of using the import statement, how to document modules and packages, and a number of tips to ensure your code is less likely to end up a tangled mess that collapses when you need to modify or extend it.

This talk is compatible with Python 2 and 3.

Ah! I see you have the machine that goes "BING"!
