Cross-platform application development is a holy grail of software engineering. Write once, run everywhere - desktops, mobiles, and the web. There have been many attempts at this over the years, but the absolute pinnacle of this art form is to have no-one notice - you want your apps to look and feel like native apps so that your users can't tell. Bonus points is if your development happens in a language you already know and use. This is the goal of BeeWare: a suite of application tools and libraries that to develop native cross platform applications in Python. During this short presentation Katie will take you on a tour of the BeeWare stack, and describe how we've used the project as an incubator for new open source contributors around the world.

(The talk was unfortunately not recorded, but Katie has recorded a screencast for us!)
