talk: Functional Programming and Django QuerySets

thanks everyone for coming, for Media Temple for hosting, and for Esther for coordinating! I thought Justin's talk (his first!) on Swagger was fun and extremely useful. I hope everyone had a good time.

Here are the slides and notes for "Functional Programming and Django QuerySets" (2016 edition) -- have fun!

talk: Functional Programming and Django QuerySets soon!

I'll be speaking at the next SoCal Python meetup! If you want to go, sign up soon, there are only a few spots left.

This talk is mostly about Functional Programming in the Python world.  FP is great for testing, but it can be a bit mysterious at times. I highlight the awesomeness of FP, the dangerous bit, and how it is related to Django QuerySets.

I've given this talk a few times, and people always get excited about it. FP is not magic!  It's a clean and graceful way to write code.

Here's a link with my previous version's slides, notes, and other references:
Each time I give a talk I change it up a little or a lot. This time I'll probably add more cat photos.
