I review, approve (or reject) and push to production Python code at a bank, and I'd like to offer to talk on this subject, since best practice has been my primary focus since I started learning Python 5+ years ago. Beyond just giving away fishes, I'd like to show people how to find the best practices themselves, and talk about the principles that make them best practices.
Specifically, I'll attempt to answer the following questions:
What are best practices?
What does it mean to write code that is Pythonic?
What are coding best practices concerned with?
What are some good examples of best practices that meet these concerns?
What best practices are controversial (to avoid dogmatic ideologies)?
What are the go-to resources from which I can learn more?
My motivation: We've been getting a lot of results oriented and other-language oriented talks recently, and I'd like for us to get back to the subject of Python Development, without simply offering a basic rehash of popular online resources. And since I'm doing this work 40 hours a week, I suppose I should stop being merely a taker here.
For a venue, I suggest a large room that can sit at least 15 across with a large projection screen. Perhaps Pivotal Labs (a great venue in my experience) would be willing to host?
I'm a researcher in NYU.
Python and Java developer. Crunching massive, near realtime data flows for 6+ years.
Representing NYC Pyladies. Find me if you'd like to find out more or get involved.
Greetings, I am a student of Python, and I am always learning more.
