Come join us for Pythonic talks!

This month:

  • Why use Python Type Hints? - by Neil Pilgrim

Python already has types - what are these newfangled hints you speak of? Are they trying to turn my lovely Python into an overly-verbose strict language like Java or C++? Let's explore what these new(ish) aspects of the language look like, and what benefits they can bring - if you want to use them!

  • Lessons Learned During Advent of Code 2018 by Chris Freeman postponed

About our speakers:

Neil Pilgrim built up his development skills writing scientific physics simulations in C++, but now mainly develops in Python as his language of choice. In the last year or two he has become increasingly engaged with the Open Source Zulip team-chat community after sprinting with them at PyCon 2017, which opened his eyes to the wonder and challenges that Type Hints bring to Python!

Join us afterward upstairs at Bailey's Upper Lip (213 SW Broadway) to continue our snaky discussions over a beverage.
