Many companies are reluctant to start using Python - if you work at one of them here are some techniques to bring Python into the workplace.

In a lot of companies there is a corporate reluctance to even consider using Python in the first place, or any FOSS. Having been involved in helping to introduce Python to several companies that didn't want to even discuss it I will discuss some of the techniques to help overcome this reluctance.

We will cover first steps, some does & don'ts, strategies & measures of success with examples where I have seen Python go from virtually unknown to running on virtually everybody's machine and even being delivered to the customers.
