Topics


  • Python's Numeric Tower
    By: Phil Robare
    Experience Level: Intermediate
    Length: 15 Minutes
    Description:

    Most computer languages offer "int"s and "reals" and maybe some support for "complex" or fixed point decimal. Python goes further. This talk will discuss built-in numeric types (such as Rational and Decimal), numeric types from Numpy, and the Abstract Base Classes that make it possible to add your own specialized numeric type and have it appear as part of the language.

  • What even is a process anyway?
    By: David Sutton
    Experience Level: Novice
    Length: 30 Minutes
    Description:

    Have you ever wondered how your computers knows what programs are running? What about what happens behind the scenes when you start a program? This talk will cover the basics of how processes work, and how your operating system keeps track of what's running. By the end of it you will know enough to write your own basic versions of 'ps' or 'top'.
