CPython Functional Programming New Features Python generalSee in schedule: Thu, Jul 29, 13:15-13:45 CEST (30 min) Download/View Slides
As one of this feature's contributors, my goals in this presentation are to describe the motivation for this new functionality, present some of the problems that its use will effectively solve, and give a brief introduction of how to use it.
This talk is aimed at intermediate Python developers (although a beginner will be able to understand it). After attending you should be able to understand not just how to use pattern matching, but also when it’s a good idea to use it and what are the possible pitfalls to avoid.
There will be a Q&A session which could be a good chance to discuss your questions about why certain design decisions were made when introducing pattern matching into Python
