A couple weeks ago, I spoke at a few user groups in southern Ohio – the Cincinnati Financial internal group, CINNUG, and Dayton .NET Developers Group. I took my Python 101 for the .NET Developer talk on the road, getting the word out about Python and IronPython.
Just to answer some of the questions…
- Scoping, classes, and functions: There were some questions about functions versus classes, and I know I had confused some people on that. There was also a question about scoping in Python. For more on classes, functions, and scoping, see part 9 of the Python tutorial.
- The @ symbol: One of the guys in Dayton had asked what the @ symbol was – this is used as a decorator. For more details on decorators and why they chose the @, see PEP 318 — Decorators for Functions and Methods.
