Talk Title Python : Explorations in Rapid Development
Track Development
Scope Technical
Synopsis Python is an object oriented language ground up, but object oriented programming is an option, and you can do quite a lot without having to write object oriented code. And yet its class model supports advanced notions such as polymorphism, operator overloading, and multiple inheritance; including the hallowed concept of metaclasses.

This talk intends to present simple applications of Python, exploring the realms of Python along the way. It will also demonstrate how these simple applications can be woven together to make complete production grade utilities or applications. The talks will be a tour de force through Python's application to text handling, to XML, to the web framework and services, to databases and more. The talk attempts to be on the one hand, a view of the raw power of Python with featurees that places it between traditional scripting languages (such as Tcl, Scheme, and Perl), and systems languages (such as C, C++, and Java); and on the other hand it also attempts to be a tutorial which will possibly encourage people to consider its use in their work.
Speaker Profile Vineeth has worked in bioinformatics for the last 15 months, and is associated with bioinformatics research with the Johns Hopkins University. He has authored 3 research papers on database tools for biological data. He develops mainly using Python, and is interested in procedure optimisations for handling large biological datasets. He believes Python has been under-utilised in India, and India has not yet seen the practical power of Python unleashed. He intends to use the talks to demonstrate this.
