Python Chat

Live video chats about Python, teaching, open source, and more

Live webcasts on Python and related topics

Python Chat is a live chat for Python developers. Sometimes we talk about Python and sometimes we just talk about life.

These live events vary in format, including everything from audience-driven interviews to online workshops. Live events vary in length from 20 minutes to 90 minutes.

Isn't this like a screencast/podcast/Slack room?

Not exactly. The hosts are on video and other participants are in text chat. These events are recorded, but the best way to participate is to show up live. There's also the option to jump on video with the hosts if you have a question that requires a screenshare.

Who are you?

My name is Trey Hunner. I teach Python. I've used Python for the past 6 years. I did full-stack web consulting for 5 years and now I do remote training online as well as on-site corporate training.

I write #pythonoddity tweets, I write Python articles semi-regularly, I speak at Python conferences, and I host Python Chat events semi-regularly.

Mutability and Variable Scope in Python

📅

Is Python pass-by-reference or pass-by-value? Why are list comprehensions a big deal in Python? Why are global variables so tricky to create?

We'll discuss those questions and related topics in this chat on object mutability in Python and Python variable scope rules.

We'll talk about how variable assignment works, how argument passing works, what the different scope levels are, and we'll generally work on shaping our mental model of mutability and scope to better reflect what Python is doing under the hood.
