On the Use and Misuse of Decorators

Translations: en


(Christopher Neugebauer) What is a decorator? You might say it's a function that accepts a function and returns a function. That's wrong.

Join us for a deep (but standard talk-length) dive into decorators! You’ll learn what decorators actually are, how they work, how to write your own decorators, and how decorators enable you to do extremely weird things in Python. Most importantly, you’ll understand how to use decorators responsibly, and definitely not to confuse your friends and colleagues.
