This past Thursday Mathieu Perreault and Derek held a Python workshop entitled Street Fighting with Python. The workshop material demonstrated how in situations where you have few other resources at hand (such as in a street fight), Python is a versatile and powerful tool. Mathieu and Derek showcased a number of libraries that ship with Python including support for working with SQLite databases, pickling objects, reading and writing CSV files, building well-formed command-line tools, and constructing applications with a full graphical user interface!
This was the second Python workshop organized by members of the Network Dynamics group. Plans are already underway for holding another in November. Materials on the first and second McGill Python Workshops are available online.
