Intro to Python

A session at KCDC 2012

Friday 27th April, 2012

11:30am to 12:30pm (CST)

An introduction to the Python language. We’ll discuss a brief history of Python, the Python community and then dive right into the language itself. We’ll cover classes, functions, data types, variables and then get into some of the syntactic sugar that is Python – string formatting, list comprehensions, generators, lambdas and more. In closing, I’ll describe a typical python development setup and give a brief overview of some of my favorite Python projects.
