In one of the hallway tracks at Pycon, Raymond Hettinger came up to me and said "I've been thinking about teaching a Python class." Needless to say, I couldn't pass on that kind of opportunity. So, I'm pleased to announce that Raymond is coming to Chicago, May 16-20 to put his unique spin on my Practical Python Programming course along with an assortment of his own material. The course is being held in my Python lair so I'll stop by to say "hi" before leaving you in the hands of one of Python's foremost experts. In short, this might be one of the most fantastic Python courses ever offered--and as with past courses, space is limited to just six students.
In case you're not so familiar with Raymond's work, let's just say that it's hard to escape it if you've done any kind of Python programming at all. Not only is Raymond a Python core developer responsible for numerous features such as collections, itertools, sets, generator expressions, and the peephole optimizer, he is a well-known Pycon speaker and board member of the Python Software Foundation. In short, if you take this class, you'll not only learn about features of the Python language, you'll be learning from the person who contributed many of them in the first place.
I should emphasize that this class is really designed for new Python programmers who want to get off to a great start. As long as you know about general programming concepts, no prior Python experience is required. Of course, even if you know some Python, you are still going to learn a wide variety of new and interesting things.
More information about this and other courses is available here. Hopefully you'll join Raymond in May!
