Practical Metaprogramming in Python

Bharat Saraswat (~bhansa)


At first word Metaprogramming seems very funky and alien thing but if you have ever worked with decorators or metaclasses, your were doing metaprogramming there. In nutshell we can say metaprogramming is the code which manipulates code.

In this workshop, we will be covering some important topics like:

General OOPS in python: [Duration: 10mins]

What is OOPS?
Practical use cases
    - Creating Python classes
    - Creating Object instances 
    - Using Inheritance

Descriptors: [Duration: 15mins]

What & How
Modeling attriubutes in Python
Practical use cases for descriptors 
    - Reduce memory footprint for an object
    - Quick approach to create Json

Metaclasses: [Duration: 30mins]

How classes work in Python
Class and object creation lifecycle
What and How of metaclasses
Practical use cases
    - Singleton and bean like Objects
    - Abstract family of classes
    - Logging infra

Decorators: [Duration: 20mins]

What & How
Practical use cases
    - Loggers
    - Memoizations

Generators: [Duration: 15mins]

Introduction to generators
Practical use cases
    - Memory efficient
    - Infinite stream of data
    - Pipelining generators

Data Classes: [Duration: 30mins]

Introduction to Data Classes
Practical use cases
    - Implementing basic Data Classes
    - Optimizing Data Classes

Project Implementation: [Duration: 30mins]

We will be covering all above topics to create a single project.

Design patterns & choices are an important aspect of any production application and guide the scalability, performance, and robustness of the application. In this talk, we will see some practical implementations of such design patterns.


Knowledge/Experience of python programming, classes and objects, basic overview of oops concepts is plus.
