June 25th, 2015 Meeting is CANCELLED
There was a death in the family of our speaker so we have to cancel this month's meeting.
We apologize for the late notice but the death occurred yesterday.
Our thoughts and condolences are with Brett. We will invite him to speak later this year.
Topic: How to Be More Effective with Classes
Speaker: Brett Slatkin
Defining a natural hierarchy of classes in Python can be challenging.
Features like multiple inheritance, metaclasses, and classmethods can
make such hierarchies significantly more powerful. However, these
language features are complex and easy to use incorrectly. This talk
will cover the best way to put the capabilities of classes to work so
you can write Python programs more effectively.
Brett Slatkin is the author of Effective Python (Addison-Wesley
2015). He's the engineering lead and co-founder of Google Consumer
Surveys. He formerly worked on Google App Engine, the PubSubHubbub
protocol and managing Google's server fleet.
