Flask Creator Armin Ronacher Interview

We had a great time speaking with Armin and learning more about his approach to life & writing code. At Evrone, we frequently use Flask framework to develop custom solutions for our clients.
SAN FRANCISCO - Aug. 28, 2023 - PRLog -- Armin Ronacher has become a prolific contributor to the Python software ecosystem, having created such widely used projects as Flask and Jinja2. Over the last 10 years, he had worked on various Open Source and commercial projects, and we were extremely excited to speak with him about his life and career! In this interview, Armin talks about his work at Sentry, shares his thoughts on handling errors in the backend, speaks about the differences between Rust and Python, the "gradual typing" approach, and, of course, the secrets of his work-life balance.

Evrone: Your job title is Director of Engineering. What does your everyday work look like at Sentry?

Armin: From a scheduling point of view my day is typically split in two parts. I work from 9 to around 3pm/4pm when I pick up the kids from daycare. Then I have a second slot late in the evening/night for meetings across timezones. That segmentation works well for me because that way I have time with the kids when it's light outside. In terms of what I do in many ways my role is to make sure that all the people that work with me are aligned on the things that matter. This is particularly important because Sentry is a company with multiple locations across timezones. Really it's a mix of hiring, solving people problems, assisting in system architecture, shaping or communicating product vision to the actual projects and then a lot of assisting with odd engineering issues.
