Want a warm-up to PyCon Ireland? We are delighted to announce an advanced Python two-day workshop run by Mike Müller of Python Academy.

Intended Audience

The workshop is for intermediate Python programmers who would like to make it onto the advanced level. Learn how to take full advantage of this powerful language.

Course Content

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:

  • Comprehensions
  • Iterators and generators
  • Context managers
  • Decorators
  • Descriptors
  • Metaclasses
  • Conventions and good style a.k.a. pythonic programming

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 training.

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 PyCon in Montrèal 2014.

Mike taught about 180 Python classes with well over 400 training days.
