Code completion is part of every programmer’s working environment, but to plenty of people, it still feels like magic. On this episode, Meredydd Lyff, founder and CEO of Anvil, joins the home team to discuss code completion: what it is and how it works, from first principles to best practices. Plus: Is 90% of biology attributable to magic gremlins?

Episode notes: 

Anvil is an open-source web framework for building full-stack applications entirely in Python.

Ready to dig deeper into code completion? Check out Meredydd’s talk at PyCon 2022 (he even built a code completion engine live on stage).
