By codemongrel

The countdown timer is ticking! PyCon Ireland 2010 is only just around the corner! It all goes down on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th of July at the Dublin School of English on Wellington Quay, Dublin 2. Back again around the mic are Python Ireland members Alan Kennedy, Michael Twomey, Vishal Vatsa and Tendayi Mawushe; taking us on a fascinating tour through the exciting world of Python, with a few small Ruby interjections :-) , covering

  • Dundermethods – Double Underscore methods in Python
  • PyCharm – the Python IDE from JetBrains (for Ruby, check out their RubyMine IDE)
  • Pickle – Serializating objects in Python
  • Jython, Rubinius and the wonderful world of Mutli VMs
  • Approach to patterns in dynamic languages – To Russ Olsen, author of the great Design Patterns in Ruby, a massive apology for forgetting your surname halfway through the podcast!

    Olsen! Olsen! Actually you can call me any name you like as long as you keep saying nice things about my book.

    Thanks for the kind words – I enjoyed the podcast.
