Want a warm-up to PyCon Ireland? We are delighted to announce an advanced
Python one-day workshop run by Mike Müller of Python Academy.
The workshop is for intermediate Python programmers who would like to make it
onto the advanced level and learn how to take full advantage of this powerful
Python offers several advanced concepts. It is possible to write useful Python
programs without them. But if you want to really understand how Python works
and how to write really pythonic programs, you should know about these topics:
- Iterators and generators
- Context managers
The workshop covers them in detail using code examples that will be immediately
useful for your daily work. Carefully crafted exercises help you to experience
the learnt material. You will get detailed solutions for all exercises after
The workshop content and teaching concept is based on numerous advanced Python
classes taught by Mike Müller including in-house courses and the successful
courses at EuroPython 2012 and 2013, PyConPL 2012, PyCon DE 2013, PyCon IE 2013
and 2014, and PyCon in Montrèal 2014 as well as PyUnConf 2015.
Mike taught more than 260 Python classes with well over 650 training days.
Bring your laptop with Python 2.7 or 3.5 installed for an intensive,
hands-on workshop with real-life examples. The course will use the
Jupyter Notebook. It is recommend to install it for a better course
experience. You can also use your favorite (interactive) Python environment
and editor. The easiest was is to instal Miniconda and than::
