We’re going to mesh TDD, a desire to learn Python and Brazilian BBQ. Bring your laptop (having Python 2.x installed (will note 3.x differences)). This is hands on! You will program! It is assumed that you know how to program but perhaps not in Python. You start hungry and leave stuffed. We assume you know nothing and will stuff you with enough Python to be dangerous.
The tutorial works like this: There’s a short presentation. A short testcase for you to complete. Rinse/repeat until we run out of time. Hopefully you’ll walk away from this tutorial knowing how to write Python programs.
Course will cover:
There are short testcases to allow participants to practice concepts.
Included are slides, code for assignments a handout and prizes for completion of assignments.
Matt would like to be an Open Source pragmatist, but is probably more of a zealot. He once impersonated Alan Cox, apparently they look similar. He has spoken at OSCON, PyCON, SCALE and local user groups in Utah and the Bay Area. Matt has programmed in Python since 2000 writing websites, as well tooling and scripts for search engines, build systems, and business intelligence. He is a rabid Linux (l)user.
