SAM SIG: Design Patterns in Python
The Monthly Meeting of the SAM SIG
Topic: Design Patterns in Python
Presenter: Alex Martelli, Uber Tech Lead, Google Production Systems, and author, Python in a Nutshell, and Python Cookbook
Abstract: Design Patterns must be studied in the context of the language in which they'll get implemented -- the Gang of Four made that point strongly in their book, though almost everybody else seems not to have noticed :-). This talk explores some "classic" Design Patterns in all the various categories -- Creational, Structural, and Behavioral -- studying how they show up in Python programs, and how they interact with Python's special strengths; "known uses" of the various DPs are taken from the vast standard library of modules that comes with Python.
Presenter Bio: Alex Martelli is Uber Tech Lead (Production Systems) at Google.
