Parsing with PLY *and* LIGHTNING TALKS

Apr 24, 2013 · Cambridge, United States of America

We have a short presentation about PLY, and then LIGHTNING TALKS. Thanks to CustomMade for sponsoring pizza, and Carbonite for sponsoring drinks afterwards!

Parsing with PLY, Johnny Healey

This talk will provide an introduction to PLY, a python-based implementation of lex and yacc. There will be a brief summary of what lexer and parser generators are and when they are appropriate to use. The talk will then proceed into a tutorial of how PLY can be used to construct a parser. Demonstration examples will revolve around the creation of a simple engine for processing the bbcode markup language.



We have a variety of lightning talks planned, including:

  • Making snowflakes with Python
  • Descriptors
  • Blood Analysis
  • Economic simulation with open government data
  • Python anti-patterns
  • And more...

I don't know how many we'll be able to squeeze in, but it should be a great night!  We'll be doing more lightning talks at future events, so if your talk doesn't fit, don't worry, there will be more opportunities.
