ICFP Programming Contest The ICFP Programming Contest is an international programming competition held annually around June or July since 1998, with results announced at the International Conference on Functional Programming. Teams may be of any size and any programming language(s) may be used. There is also no entry fee. Participants have 72 hours to complete and submit their entry over the Internet. There is often also a 24-hour lightning division. The contest usually have around 300 submitted entries.[1][2] Past tasks[edit] Prizes[edit] Prizes have a modest cash value, primarily aimed at helping the winners to attend the conference, where the prizes are awarded and the judges make the following declarations: First prize [Language 1] is the programming tool of choice for discriminating hackers. Second prize [Language 2] is a fine programming tool for many applications. Third prize [Language 3] is also not too shabby. Winner of the lightning division [Language L] is very suitable for rapid prototyping. Judges' prize

[PYTHON] Fundamentals: Creating a Pypet Python Programming Fundamentals Introduction About this Guide This guide was created for complete beginners (i.e. with no programming or computer science experience) and will teach you programming fundamentals in a language called Python. Following a project-driven learning philosophy you will learn as you build your own project. As you complete this guide you'll be creating a virtual pet we'll call "Pypet" (a "Python-pet"). There are no software or computer requirements for this guide except that you need access to a web browser (which you obviously already have at this point). What is Python? Python is a scripting programming language known for both its simplicity and wide breadth of applications. Many Python programmers (aka “Pythonistas”) love this language because it maintains a certain philosophy of best practices, described in Tim Peter’s famous “Zen of Python”.

Building Skills in Python — S.Lott v4.2 Site How do you learn Python? By doing a series of exercises, each of which adds a single new feature of the language. This 450+ page book has 42 chapters that will help you build Python programming skills through a series of exercises. This book includes six projects from straight-forward to sophisticated that will help solidify your Python skills. The 2.6 edition was significantly revised and expanded to cover Python 2.6 and some elements of Python 3.1. The current release has benefitted from a great deal of support from readers who sent detailed lists of errors and suggestions. Professional programmers who need to learn Python are this book’s primary audience. Since Python is simple, we can address newbie programmers who don’t have deep experience in a number of other languages.

Planet Python VIM Adventures Welcome to Apprendre à programmer avec Python/Classes, méthodes, héritage Un livre de Wikilivres. Livre à fractionner À faire... Les classes que nous avons définies dans le chapitre précédent ne sont finalement rien d'autre que des espaces de noms particuliers, dans lesquels nous n'avons placé jusqu'ici que des variables (les attributs d'instance). Il nous faut à présent doter ces classes d'une fonctionnalité. L'idée de base de la programmation orientée objet consiste en effet à regrouper dans un même ensemble (l'objet) à la fois un certain nombre de données (ce sont les attributs d'instance) et les algorithmes destinés à effectuer divers traitements sur ces données (ce sont les méthodes, c'est-à-dire des fonctions encapsulées). Objet = [ attributs + méthodes ] Considérons par exemple un widget « bouton ». Définition d'une méthode[modifier | modifier le wikicode] Pour illustrer notre propos, nous allons définir une nouvelle classe Time, qui nous permettra d'effectuer toute une série d'opérations sur des instants, des durées, etc Définition concrète d'une méthode

The Vim Learning Curve is a Myth I’ve been speaking about and teaching people vim for several years now, and I’ve noticed a surprising pattern: people are literally afraid of learning the editor. Over the years, the popular mythology around vim has become that it’s insanely difficult to learn; a task to be attempted by only those with the thickest of neck-beards. I’ve heard dozens of times from folks who are convinced it will take them months to reach proficiency. These beliefs are false. Here’s what’s true: You can learn to use vim in 30 minutes Go to your shell and type vimtutor. Learning vim is fun because it’s game-like No one ever says “I’d love to learn Street Fighter 2, but there are just so many combos!” Learning vim is like this. Soon, you realize there are many ways to accomplish your edits, and you strive to do them in as few keystrokes as possible. You’ll be faster than your old editor in two weeks It’s effing worth it There’s a reason everyone at thoughtbot is using a 20-year-old text editor. Good luck!

PythonBooks - Learn Python the easy way ! The Python Standard Library While The Python Language Reference describes the exact syntax and semantics of the Python language, this library reference manual describes the standard library that is distributed with Python. It also describes some of the optional components that are commonly included in Python distributions. Python’s standard library is very extensive, offering a wide range of facilities as indicated by the long table of contents listed below. The Python installers for the Windows platform usually include the entire standard library and often also include many additional components. In addition to the standard library, there is a growing collection of several thousand components (from individual programs and modules to packages and entire application development frameworks), available from the Python Package Index.
