December BayPIGgies meeting: Thursday, December 15, 2011: What Is
Pythonic?

Speaker Marilyn Davis

Abstract:

Marilyn will give a clear, succinct, and hopefully, thought-provoking,
definition for the word "pythonic".  She'll explain a few concepts that
help you to produce pythonic code. And, using her definition, she will
give code examples and pythonic ratings, from 0 to 10, for various
snippets of code.

We'll leave time for others to share their snippets of code. So bring
any code or thoughts that you consider to be particular pythonic, or
un-pythonic, or that just leave you curious.  We'll try to work
together to pythonisize any code example, and put a rating on it.


Bio:

Marilyn Davis earned a Ph.D. in Radio Astronomy from UCSD, and Master's
degrees in Applied Physics from UCSD, and in Mathematics from Denver
University. Computer programming and teaching captured her imagination
and she has made significant contributions in scientific, environmental,
statistical, operations research, test-development, and electronic
democracy applications. After teaching C Programming at UCSC-Extension
for many years, she met Python and immediately recognized it as a big
boon to software engineering.  Marilyn currently conducts Python
training classes in various companies through PythonTrainer.Com, and at
UCSC-Extension in Santa Clara.
