The most interesting thing[1] was interesting because I should have known it.
It used the dictionary get method to count words.

    counts = {}
    for word in words_list:
        counts[word] = counts.get(word, 0) + 1

We had to look it up in Learning Python by Mark Lutz.
(p 210 in a printing of 4th edition.)

It reminded me of the introductory examples on starting on page 19 of pfda[2].

Someone just passed the CISSP exam, so now can play with Python.
If he passed, his employer would pay for it (about $600).
If he failed, his employer would not pay for it.
It was a four hour multiple choice exam.
One gets a pass/fail grade. 70% is passing.
One is not told how well one did.

Polymorphism (computer science), the ability in computer programming to present
the same interface for differing underlying forms (data types).
Operator overloading can be an example of polymorphism.

That's a great introduction to (i)python and is getting some maintainance
attention, including the addition of a pandas notebook.

There are probably more notes and ipython notebooks coming for 
this dojo.
