Unlocking Python's Potential: OOP, SOLID, and Design Patterns Demystified

vivek keshore (~vivek17)




Have you ever wondered, what are design principles and design patterns? How does it make any difference to the application code Object-Oriented Programming is one of the most popular method of modern software development, yet it is one of the most misunderstood concept. Everyone knows the words and definition of popular words like Abstraction, Polymorphism, Inheritance, and encapsulation, yet very few can actually explain beyond book definition or implement these in real world scenarios, and implementing the code in Python using various magic methods, design principles and design patterns adds an extra layer of complexity.

The objective of this workshop is to cultivate the Object-Oriented Design thinking, and eliminating all the misunderstandings around the Object-Oriented paradigm, enlighten the attendees with the knowledge and usage of design principles and design patterns. Understanding advanced concepts such as magic methods, SOLID principles, and design patterns has become imperative for developers to build robust, scalable, and maintainable software solutions.

This workshop offers a unique opportunity for Python developers to deepen their understanding on the topic, and by attending this session, participants will gain valuable insights and practical knowledge that they can apply in their projects, ultimately becoming more proficient and effective Python programmers.

The workshop would begin by dissecting Python Object-Oriented Programming (OOP), covering fundamental concepts, practical examples, and best practices for class design. Participants would delve into Python Magic Methods, understanding their significance and leveraging them for customized class behavior. SOLID Design Principles would be discussed through real-world examples, application tips, and case studies highlighting their benefits. The highlight of the workshop would be understanding various Design Patterns, along with detailed discussion, and practical insights into their importance and application.

The three hour workshop would be full of live coding and interactive knowledge sharing.
