DevBeat (November 12-13 in the Regency Center, San Francisco) is the can’t-miss event for those bright, motivated, mid-career developers. (Read: at least one year of experience as a software engineer)

Hackbright Academy is excited to be a media partner of DevBeat 2013!

Learn from Hackbright Academy lead instructor and co-founder Christian Fernandez as he teaches a Master Class – “an introduction to Python Obscura” – at DevBeat this Tuesday, November 12 from 2:40pm to 3:35pm at Sutter Annex. Here is the Master Class description from DevBeat –

If you’ve recently taken up Python, your code probably looks a lot like whatever language you were writing in previously. This is one of the great things about Python: it has the flexibility to allow a variety of idioms from other languages. However, Python has a number of obscure features you can start incorporating into your code to make it distinctly pythonic. Learn about some useful (and not-so-useful) Python tricks including generators, list comprehensions, decorators, and the bizarre dark magic of metaclasses and introspection.

VentureBeat writer Jolie O’Dell describes DevBeat

We’re doing a security “breakathon.” We’ve got speakers who will blow your mind and make all your hacker-y dreams come true. We booked a huge, gothy-goth mansion with three floors of historical darkness.

What to expect at DevBeat 2013:

• Take Master Classes on Node, Angular, Python, and more
• Dive into workshops on security, design, and dev team leadership
• Hear talks from hackers like DHH, Stallman, Lerdorf, and many others
• Make decisions about what to learn, do, and be in the years to come
• Hack hardware hands-on with your peers
• Venture deeper into polyglot territory
• Explore new career paths
