Metaclasses in July Python Magazine · Tuesday, July 29, 2008
While I do not advertise it directly on this site, in addition to my “day job” I also provide Python training services for companies and individuals that want a comprehensive introduction to the Python programming language on a compressed schedule. One of the most difficult topics to condense and explain to a group of new Python programmers is metaclasses. Over the last year or so I’ve spent a lot of time refining my teaching methods to make this complex topic approachable.
A few months ago, I presented a version of my slides on metaclasses at a PyATL meeting. Following the meeting, I was approached by Doug Hellmann about the possibility of writing an article on metaclasses for Python Magazine. Well, I am pleased to say that my article, entitled Metaclasses Demystified appears in the July 2008 issue of Python Magazine.
This is my first professionally published technical article, and I am really excited that my work will be read by many Python programmers. Depending on feedback from readers, expect to see more contributions to Python Magazine from me in the future. It was a lot of fun crafting the article!
- Great article! I love your blog, and your article finally shed some light on this strange topic. Thanks.
