19:00 Four years of Python
— Duarte Carmo, Machine Learning Engineer at Amplemarket
The other day I realized: I’ve been programming in Python for about 4 years now. I do get paid to write code, but for some reason still don’t consider myself a pro. I did learn some valuable lessons however. For those who just got started with Python, you’ll hopefully take something out of these lessons. For the experienced, see this as a celebration of our beloved language.
Some of the topics I’ll cover are:
Reading is better then googling
Keep things stupid simple
First make it work, then make it pretty
I’ll share some learnings, principles, and resources that I’ve learned through the years.
20:00 More socializing, discussing/trying what we learned
22:00 Doors close
Sponsors: We have to remember to thank our sponsors!
