PyTN Profiles: Jason Orendorff and New Relic

Speaker: Jason Orendorff (@jorendorff)


Jason Orendorff hacks on the Firefox JavaScript engine for Mozilla.

On Sunday at 1:25 PM, Jason presents on lambda and the Nature of Data.

What if there were no strings, no numbers, no lists or dicts? No if-statements, no loops? What if there were only functions? Could you still write programs? This is not a practical talk. It’s a puzzle talk. It’s about the foundations of computer science and the nature of data. We will write real code, though: we’ll build numbers, and much more, out of nothing but Python lambdas.
