Tutorial: Hands-on Python for Programmers

Presented by:

Matt Harrison


Are you new to Python? Or do you feel like you grok the syntax, but would like to understand new idioms or where to use them? Want to watch an experienced Python developer create code from nothing? Instead of just covering the syntax, we will introduce most of Python as we build code together.

Bring your laptop, and we will program a predictive text engine from scratch together. Follow along as we start with IDLE (or your favorite editor) and a blank file and end with a tested, idiomatic Python module that will learn from any text we pass into it, and predict characters or words for us.
