In Dr. Tim Finin's Principles of Programming Languages course (CMSC 331), I will be giving a guest lecture tutorial on Python. Most of these students have a semester or two of Java and C experience from introductory computer science classes, so I tried to keep it relatively simple.
Since I have this tutorial written up I will hopefully keep it updated as I come across interesting things. Just a few days ago I learned about the back-ticks around something to convert to a string. E.g.,
`12345` returns '3'. I saw this in one of my student's code for one of their coding assignments; I should read more code other than my own.
