The magic of Python

3:15pm - 3:40pm on Saturday, October 5 in PennTop North

Darshan Markandaiah


Come to this talk to learn more about magic methods in Python. You might already be aware of some magic methods such as __repr__ and __len__, but Python has a number of other methods that aid in writing cleaner, idiomatic code. In this talk, I will enumerate over a range of these magic methods along with example code snippets. I’ll then be touching upon Abstract Base Classes that offer free functionality if you implement certain methods on your class. I’ll end by introducing Context Managers and describing how you can write your own Context Managers using a few magic methods.
