About Python Namespaces (and Code Objects)

Summary

An explanation of some of the underlying concepts of Python, come learn about names and values placed in namespaces, modified by code objects and collected into modules.

Description

We'll explore namespaces using the Python interactive prompt, with graphical display of object trees using Graphviz. Also explained will be the namespace concepts of closures and early binding; how to define new objects without subclassing via use of default/curried arguments and closures.
