Due to its robust namespacing, Python uniquely equips developers to write and distribute reusable code. The Python community has a tool for this: the Python Package Index. PyPI is a massive repository of code, and in this talk you'll learn how to take code that you've written it and register and distribute it for use by others.
Python's metaclasses grant the Python OOP ecosystem all the power of more complex object inheritance systems in other languages, while retaining for most uses the simplicity of the straightforward class structures most developers learn when being introduced to object-oriented programming. This talk is an explanation of metaclasses: first, what they are, and second, how to use them.
