Now that Toby Ho has volunteered to do a presentation on what he's
learned recently about parameter lists, we have a full slate of talks
ready for you at tonight's Python Atlanta Meetup!
6:00pm - (optional) Dinner at Six Feet Under on 11th Street.
7:30pm - We meet at the GTRI Food Processing building on North Avenue
"Nuts & Bolts" - Brandon Rhodes (me!)
"Better Living With Parameter Lists" - Toby Ho
"Why Use Grok?" - Brandon Rhodes
I hope that beginners, especially, will find my new "Nuts & Bolts"
session useful, which in the future could become a regular feature of
our Meetups. I'll have a small collection of topics that I've collected
over the past month, both off of Python blogs and from my own work in
Python, and I'll try to briefly introduce each topic both at a very
basic level for complete beginners, then throw in some deeper tidbits
for experienced Python programmers. My hope is that these few short
topics will generate lots of questions and comments, so that both our
new and old Python programmers can hear about each other's experiences
using and learning about the language.
Then we have two full presentations scheduled, which cover a single
topic over a longer period of time.
First up with be Toby Ho, talking about what he's learned about using
Python parameter lists. Then, I'll give the same talk I gave at PyWorks
last month - but you'll get it for free, without having to attend a
conference! - about how to choose between the most popular of the Python
The holidays are busy, but I hope to see many of you there. It looks
like the rains have lifted away from the city, so driving should be
safer, and traffic lighter, than it was yesterday evening. See you
