Python 101 for the .NET Developer
Presented by Sarah Dutkiewicz
The first part of the session will cover the basics of Python - its history, how its data structures compare to those we're familiar with in the primary .NET languages, its strong and weak points, who's using it, and why you as a developer - both generally speaking and as a .NET developer - should care about Python. The second part of the session will get into the demos - starting with some basic Python scripts and getting into IronPython scripts, if time allows. By the end of this session, you'll have an idea of what Python is, why you should know it as a developer and specifically as a .NET developer, and how to get setup and write a basic app in both Python and IronPython.
