Ahhh… Now I Understand

Descriptors, like meta-classes, are a feature of Python that I didn’t really understand up until now. Raymond Hettinger has written an excellent How-To Guide for Descriptors, which clearly explains and demonstrates their use. My biggest suprise is that (unlike meta-classes) I already knew how to use Descriptors, I just didn’t have the vocabulary to adequately explain them or an understanding of the underlying machinary.

Reading explanations of advanced Python features always leaves me feeling a little overwhelmed, yet incredibly empowered: “you mean I can do that with so little code?”

Welcome

So this is my fourth (and hopefully final) attempt at a blog. With each preceding instance I either became too lazy, too busy or too enamoured with other blogging software to keep things up. This time will be different. I swear.

So my short term goals for yergler.net:

  • make the templates not suck (well, suck less)
  • get my photo albums uploaded and into a psuedo-manageable state
  • post witty commentary and review of all things related to my life

We’ll see how many of those actually happen, and how soon. Stay tuned.
