PADNUG Not-West: Python for C# developers

Microsoft Portland Office (Pearl District)
1414 NW Northrup St, Suite 900
Portland, OR 97209-2798, US (map)



Welcome to the PADNUG Not-West meeting! We've had people clamoring for some content on the other side of the hills and there are now people who can help make that happen! This is an experiment, for sure, but one we hope can be a regular feature.

If you love C# and .NET, you may be surprised to see how many of the features you love also exist in Python (often first). Python is a wonderful language. It is a clean high-level language which values readability over many trade-offs. You can build web applications serving billions of monthly page views. You can build cross-platform GUI applications such as DropBox. You can access amazingly powerful database servers such as MongoDB and SQL Server. But did you know many of the things you absolutely love about C# also exist in Python? Lambda expressions - check. foreach loops - check. Rich class library - check. Iterators - check. And there is more. Come learn about all the things you love from C# and see how they are accomplished in Python.
