The bi-monthly Python Tuesday sessions are back!
In this upcoming edition on May 31st we’ll be focusing on solving simple
problems while learning about the language. Furthermore we will learn its data structures and a few functions provided by the Python Standard Library.
The chosen use-case is related to file management: we will be building a
moderately sophisticated program to analyze the content of a directory.
Our program should recursively read the content of a directory and provide
answers to questions such as:
- how many directories, files, symbolic- and hard links are in the directory
- What are the top 10 directories in terms of size or number of files in them?
This session is meant for the novice Python programmer. During this Python Tuesday you may code along or just focus on the explanation on how to approach the problem and build the solution.
