I second the suggestion of a 'newbie nugget' covering decorators:
preferably with a non trivial example.

>>   A newbie nugget is a short talk on a single
>> feature of Python programming, maybe a technique
>> or language feature or a built-in or..., that
>> is from five to ten minutes and targets an
>> experienced coder who is fairly new to Python.
> That is me: an experienced coder fairly new to Python.  My 10 years of

> or working with developers but never doing code myself for my day job.
> Now I'm working to get back on the keyboard because frankly it is just
> more fun than all the other things I can do.
> So I don't want to give a newbie talk, but I'll suggest newbie talk
> subjects that I'd like to attend.
> - decorators - I've read about them and I get them in theory, and I've
> looked at some examples in our code base, but.... I feel like I'm missing
> the point.

> That is all I can think of right now.  Maybe other newbies can suggest a
