Is there a recommended way to build workflow code and organize local imports. how should I properly organize the workflow code / utils imports over a dask cluster? I’m new to python and I find myself having to build eggs + upload them while these are not my familiar territory.

anything that you import locally when you build your flow needs to also be importable at run time on all of the dask workers; typically people use the
upload_file
Dask API to upload their file import dependencies: https://distributed.dask.org/en/latest/api.html#distributed.Client.upload_file
in fact, Matt Rocklin (the creator of Dask) and I are working on a blog post on precisely this topic - I’ll be sure to post it here when it’s available
