What does bar.foo do? - An exploration of Python assignment, objects, attributes and descriptors
This is a talk I gave March 27, 2014 at the Ottawa Python Authors Group meetup.
Follow along with the IPython notebook version if you would like to play with the code examples.
This is the second part of the talk I gave January 24, 2013 at the Ottawa Python Authors Group.
Part One introduces Python iterables and iterators and generators. This part covers the advanced use of generators while building an interactive two-player network game.
This is part one of a talk I gave January 24, 2013 at the Ottawa Python Authors Group
Part Two is now also available.
Both parts of this presentation are also available as a single IPython Notebook which you can download and run locally, or view with nbviewer.ipython.org. The complete source is available at https://github.com/wardi/iterables-iterators-generators
Gerbi CMS (nee django-page-cms) is a multilingual content management system written in Python and based on the Django web framework. It's currently my favourite CMS software and use it for a number of web sites I administer.
Python is a wonderful language, but some parts should really have bright WARNING signs all over them. There are features that just can't be used safely and others are that are useful but people tend to use in the wrong ways.
This is a rough transcript of the talk I gave at my local Python group on November 15, with some of the audience feed back mixed in. Most of this came from hanging around the Python IRC channel, something I highly recommend.
[update 2011-12-19: improved "array" critique, add "python -i" suggestion to "reload" critique, add html targets to sections]
[update 2011-12-20: include additional links from agentultra and ffrinch]
[update 2012-01-06: added hasattr and find]
[update 2012-04-09: some links and syntax highlighting]
The third iteration the Arevco Lighting web site is now up.
The old site was simple HTML and images generated from a script, which I quite liked but wasn't the easiest thing for other people to update. The new site has been professionally skinned and is now running a Django CMS with some custom index code for product pages. I used the following:
I've used Gerbi now for a few public web sites. It's a well designed and usable CMS that is quite easy to extend. It also has good multilingual support that will make translating content as easy as editing the pages.
Catching up on some more old business: here are the slides from the Python 2 and Python 3 talk I gave at last month's OCLUG meeting.
I am also preparing some Python tutorials for the upcoming 2011 Linux Symposium in Ottawa June 13-15. Hope you can make it.
I'm late with this update (busy catching up on other work that I neglected last month) but I must report that the Ottawa IPv6 Summit went far better than I had hoped: Great turn-out, great venue, great talks and great food.
Pictures are now available from Richard Guy Briggs and we're working on putting the talk videos online with the help of ISI Global Webcasting.
The space at Telfer School of Management was ideal, and the Telfer volunteers got everyone registered helped everything run really smoothly all day.
It was tons of work, but I look forward to doing it again. Maybe I'll even catch more than a couple talks in person next time.
