Easier Classes: Python Classes Without All the Cruft. Houston Python Meetup.

Decisio Health 3900 Essex Ln. Suite #600 , Houston, TX (map)

Hello Pythoneers!

This month Trey Hunner will discuss Easier Classes: Python Classes Without All the Cruft.

In this talk we'll take a look at how to cut down on the boilerplate required in making a well-behaved Python class. We'll first see how to make classes with proper string representations, comparability, iterability, and immutability. Then we'll dive into helper tools built-in to the standard library and available in third-party libraries.

Trey Hunner is a former director at the Python Software Foundation, a member of the Django Software Foundation, a Django Girls San Diego co-organizer, and a co-organizer of San Diego Python.

(We're trying something a bit different this month; this will be a remotely broadcast talk.)

VENUE AND SPONSOR: Decisio Health ( https://decisiohealth.com/ ) has graciously offered to host our Python Meetup! We will be meeting at Decisio Health's office at 3900 Essex Ln. Suite #600 Houston, TX 77027, on the sixth floor. Decisio Health is excited to sponsor the Python Meetup, and we are excited to welcome this new venue opportunity.

FOOD/DRINK: Decisio will be providing Food (both vegetarian and meat varieties) as well as water, beer, and soda. If you have alternate preferences, please feel free to bring your own (perhaps from Central Market, next door). If your company would like to SPONSOR FOOD/DRINK for an upcoming meetup, please get in touch.

Note that air conditioning ends and custodial services begin at 9:00pm. Feel free to mingle afterwards, however we need to exit the office itself by 9:30pm so office staff can go home to their families.

PARKING: Plenty of marked VISITOR spots are available in the garage. Please DO NOT use "Reserved" parking, especially "Reserved Kelsey-Seybold" parking. (Parking at Central Market is also possible but "at your own risk" regarding their towing policies).

Share your Lightning Talks! A "lightning talk" is a quick mini-presentation (5 minutes maximum) on any Python topic you'd like. We'll save time for 2-3 of these each month: to save a spot, post a comment with your talk's title/topic. Beginner topics are especially welcome!

Presentations Wanted: If you'd like to share a topic with the group at an upcoming, let's talk!
