The "B Sides" slides

There are a few interesting dataclasses features that I didn't mention during my talk. Some of these I didn't mention for the sake of time and some of these dive just a bit more into dataclasses than I had planned in this talk.

These missing slides include the following extra information:

You can find me presenting some of these slides in this live online presentation I gave for the PyHouston meetup.

Who Am I?

My name is Trey and I help professional programmers improve their Python skills. I run a Python skill-building service for individuals called Python Morsels and I do on-site and remote Python training for teams and corporations.

I write articles regularly at treyhunner.com. If you'd like to keep up with my writing, sign up for my email newsletter. You can also find me on Twitter as @treyhunner.

Chat with me about team learning

If you work in a team of folks who get paid to write Python code, I would love to chat about your team's Python skill-building strategies with you.

Build your Python skills every week

The best way to improve your skills is to practice. It's hard to practice unless you have a regimen and a routine. Making a practice routine on your own is time-consuming and hard.

Python Morsels can help! Through Python Morsels, every Monday I send out one Python exercise. These exercise are meant to help professional Python programmers to hone their skills, not brand new programmers. They've been described as "Kreutzer's etudes for Python" and "like a reverse code review".

I send out the exercise on Monday morning which includes a base problem, bonuses, and automated tests to run against your code. The exercise should take you up to 30 minutes. On Wednesday I send out an email explaining different solutions for the exercise and why we might choose one technique over another.
