PyCon 2009: Python 102 (Part 1 of 3)

Description

Python 102 (Part 1 of 3)

This half-day tutorial presents intermediate and some advanced features of Python to beginning and intermediate programmers. It pairs well with Python 101 following a similar outline but at a deeper level. Rather than starting with "Hello, world!", we use the interactive Python interpreter to get hands- on familiarity with much of core Python before covering blocks and scripts. The tutorial is divided into short sections, each with presentation and exercises, to quickly cover lots of ground. Advanced topics are introduced throughout and covered in "extra credit" exercises such that more advanced participants can learn at their own pace.
