The Monday tutorials were a mixed bag.
My first tutorial was about object oriented programming in PHP5 was less about PHP5, and more about teaching PHP4 people what object oriented programming is. I didn't learn much, and had a hard time convincing the PHP5 guys that the polymorphism in PHP5 is awkward and wierd. Oh well... its not like its a real language anyway.
The second tutorial, about advanced topics in the Python core framework was very good. It was a great overview of tips and tricks for writing Python, as well as a long brain dump of killer third party Python apps. Paul Prescod really knows his Python. It really got me fired up to use advanced Python a lot more.
