This month Jurek (Jerzy) Kozyra (@jurek_kozyra) will give a talk on Python idioms. The guiding principles behind the design of Python have resulted in a language which emphasizes readability and consistency, meaning that there is a natural style to writing Python well. Learning to write idiomatic Python is part of learning to understand the Zen of Python.
After Jerzy’s talk for this month’s code dojo we’ll work in teams to see how far we can get through the Python Challenge.
For the unacquainted a code dojo is a hands-on group coding session. First we pick a problem then in small teams we set about coding up a solution. Then at the end of the allotted time we get together and show each other our code (bugs, warts and all). The aim is simply to have some fun - there is really no pressure to produce good or even working code! Although it can be quite intense, working with other people is a fantastic way to learn. Everyone from Python beginners to pros get something out of it. So come armed with some ideas that would make good dojo problems
