[VIDEO HAS ISSUES: Audio buzzing, talk is only 15 mins (may be cut)] An explanation of some of the underlying concepts of Python, come learn about names and values placed in namespaces, modified by code objects and collected into modules. We'll explore namespaces using the Python interactive prompt, with graphical display of object trees using Graphviz.
