It's Pythons All The Way Down!

August 04, 2019 - python advanced

A deep dive into how inheritance and metaclasses work in Python.

I was quite nervous about this talk, partly because it was 70 minutes long(!), and partly because it's the most advanced topic I've ever spoken about.

In the end I was super-pleased with the results. As I was researching how types and metaclasses work in Python, I had a couple of epiphanies which I felt really helped make the subject understandable.

When I got home (from Australia!) I discovered my wife had made notes and had a bunch of questions, which is the most definite sign I've ever had that she found the talk interesting.
