Help make Python software better: talk to the Python pip UX

by BernardTyers on Wed Aug 05, 2020 7:05 am

Hi there,

My name is Bernard Tyers - I'm a UX researcher and designer working on pip - the Python package manager. pip is used to install Python software (this can be Python packages, projects, libraries).

You might (or might not!) be aware that you are using pip when creating Adafruit Circuit Python projects.

The pip team are working to improve the usability of pip, for **all** users. Right now, a lot of what pip does can be confusing and complicated for people who are not Python experts. Our objective is to understand how to improve that.

You can read about our work on the Python Software Foundation website https://wiki.python.org/psf/Pip2020DonorFundedRoadmap and can hear about our work on this Python podcast https://testandcode.com/124

Right now we want to speak with users about the following topics:

- Who uses pip?
- How do users' disabilities affect their usage of pip?
- How does pip documentation help users?
- What pip functionality is important to users?
- What problems do people have with pip? And how can we improve it for them?

We're interested in speaking with people of all levels of Python experience.

I can't stress that enough - you don't need to be a programming expert to take part. In fact we are specifically looking to hear from those who are not programmers. We're looking for diverse users to take part in the research - if you use pip we're interested in hearing from you.

If you're interested in speaking with us about your experiences, the first thing to do is to sign up to our UX Studies you can do that here:

Then we'll get in touch with you.

I'm happy to answer any questions about this UX work. I'm not a Python expert so I'm useless for questions about that!

Forum mods: I hope it's acceptable for me posting this message here. If there's any questions, please let me know. I'm posting here as there is a lot of Python pip related threads.

Thanks in advance for your time,
Bernard
