Share One-day seminar in functional Python

Event Details

If you are a Python programmer, but don't feel completely comfortable with such functional techniques as list comprehensions, anonymous functions, and the "reduce" function, then this one-day seminar is for you!

This is not a recorded class. Rather, this is a live seminar, limited to 20 participants. There will be numerous hands-on exercises, along with the lectures, discussions, and demonstrations. You will be expected to write lots of Python code, and to discuss coding techniques and paradigms. This seminar has been given to experienced Python programmers at such companies as Apple, Cisco, HP, and VMWare, and is appropriate for anyone comfortable with the basic Python data types (strings, lists, tuples, and dicts), and with defining basic functions.

Topics covered:

  • Defining functions in Python
  • Function parameters
  • Scoping rules in Python (LEGB)
  • Innner functions
  • Passing functions as data
  • List comprehensions
  • Dictionary and set comprehensions
  • Customizing sort
  • lambda
  • map and filter
  • reduce
  • The functools module

This seminar will make you a better, more confident, and stronger Python coder.  If you don't believe that you have improved as a result of this seminar, just tell Reuven -- and he'll refund your money.
