Mastering Python 3 I/O ** PyCON'2010 Tutorial Preview in Chicago **
with David Beazley February 5, 2010, 12pm - 5pm http://www.dabeaz.com/chicago/index.html
Can't make it to PyCON, but want to attend a cutting-edge tutorial on the latest Python features? Join David Beazley, author of the Python Essential Reference, in Chicago for a preview of his new tutorial "Mastering Python 3 I/O." The goal of this tutorial is to take a top to bottom tour of the Python 3 I/O system and to focus on essential features that you must know if you are ever going to port existing applications to Python 3 or use it for real applications. This tutorial promises to go far beyond what you find in the documentation and books (Dave's included). You'll learn about tricky gotchas, see interesting practical examples, and get a better grasp of how Python 3 is put together.
This tutorial preview includes a free copy of the "Python Essential Reference, 4th Ed.", lunch at one of Chicago's finest new restaurants, artisinal pastries and more--all for the same price as a tutorial at PyCON. However, it's strictly limited to 8 attendees.
