(German) Unicode survival kit for Python

Published on 2014-10-07

Mentioning Unicode in front of Python developers often provokes negative emotions or traumatic reactions. Unlike with languages like Java or C#, Python did not support Unicode from the beginning. As a result, UnicodeErrors can become a common occurrence, especially when working with external data.

The aim of the presentation is to enable the developer to design program code in such a way that internally only Unicode is used. This ensures that special characters like German umlauts can always be represented correctly and UnicodeError can be avoided.
