Abstract

Join us on a whirlwind tour through a number of important computer science topics, designed for Python hackers without a formal CS background. If you can hack out Python code without too much trouble, but don't always know how and why it works (or how you might make it run faster) then this workshop may be for you.

Who should attend?

You should be a confident Python programmer, with an appetite for computer science.

Workshop Description

We'll cover some computer architecture, algorithms and data structures, compilers and networking, in each case peeling back some of the layers of abstraction that you may be accustomed to working with day to day. We will combine challenge-based exercises and clear explanations in what's certain to be an entertaining and eye-opening workshop.

Preparation

Bring your laptop and come ready to write and run Python 3 code.
