This event is open to anybody who identifies as a woman.
Tipping Point Partners has kindly invited PyLadies to their space to hang out and code. You must bring your laptop, as everyone who comes will be working on a tutorial or their personal projects. Please feel free to bring snacks or edible concoctions to share! If you want to give an informal presentation (5-10 minutes) of what you're working on, please email [masked] with your name, a description of what you will be demoing, and any special A/V needs you need for your presentation. We want to see anything you're working on, regardless of the level of sophistication or stage of completion.
Amy Hanlon will give a lightning talk on how to replace Python's `import` keyword with `accio`. Some points she might cover:
* how to access and easily remove/overwrite Python builtin functions interactively in a Python interpreter)
* what Python statements are, and why overwriting Python statements is hard (but overwriting Python builtin functions is easy)
* where to find the definitions of Python statements in the CPython source code
* why making changes to Python's Grammar and then recompiling doesn't always work and how to use bootstrapping to work around this
