PyCon UK 2019

Mary Chester-Kadwell

I'm a Senior Software Developer at Cambridge University Library and Cambridge Digital Humanities where I work on a lot of different code bases in a variety of languages, including my favourite, Python. My background is in archaeology but I shifted career about five years ago, partly by taking courses with the Open University and partly by learning the hard way, on the job!


Code walk this way
Mary Chester-Kadwell

How can you help Pythonistas learn a new code base more quickly and level up their Python skills? One way is with a 'code walk' — talking through a code base while reading the code together. I will talk about how I like to structure a code walk and its benefits.
