So you learned Python from an online tutorial, a training course, or from a book, but you want to learn more. Then this is the course for you. Designed for working programmers who want to take their understanding to a whole new level, you'll learn what really makes Python tick. The course starts out by looking at subtle aspects of the Python code you are already writing, but then dives into a wide variety of advanced topics including the object model, data encapsulation, descriptors, generators, coroutines, context managers, decorators, metaclasses, packages, closures, and more. By the end of the course, you'll not only know what these features are, but how they can be applied to a wide range of practical programming problems. Includes a 325 page guidebook and more than 50 hands on exercises.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Free on-street parking is easily available in the area. If traveling by CTA train, the closest CTA station is the Red Line Berwyn stop. Walk west on Berwyn to Clark Street and then head north to Balmoral. Total walking time is 15 minutes. From downtown, it may actually be substantially faster to take the #146 Express Bus which takes you directly to the same Berwyn CTA station. The CTA #22 Clark Street bus passes directly by the location. Get off at Balmoral street. The closest Metra rail station is the Ravenswood stop on the Union Pacific North line. Walk east on Lawrence to Clark street. Walk one mile north on Clark to Balmoral
