Snakes and Lambdas: Functional programming with Python

Hi All,

This month we have a joint event with the Brighton Python User Group (http://brightonpy.org/) and shall look at functional programming as it applies to Python programming !

A rough idea of topics we'll cover includes:

An introduction to functional programming - what is it ? how is it different ? why is it interesting ?
Functional patterns in Python - how are common functional idioms expressed in Python
Use cases for functional approaches in Python

It should be good fun() !

Hopefully see you all there !

    Really enjoyed the evening. Good presentations and excellent conversation afterwards that explored different functional concepts and how to find a balance between using the functional features of Python whilst still working within the idioms in the language so that you don't end up producing code that is alien and incomprehensible to programmers coming from a non-functional background.

    Really good session. Lots of new faces (not surprising given that it was a joint session with BrightonPy, but still) and lots of lively discussion. As always, it's fascinating to see people approaching the same problems in different languages and converging on solutions which are conceptually, if not syntactically, similar.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
