Understanding and using Python's AST

Episode #152, published Fri, Feb 23, 2018, recorded Mon, Feb 5, 2018

Have you heard about ASTs? Maybe that was in the context of compilers or parsers? They are an powerful data structure that we all use but often indirectly. They are just an, well, abstract idea to most of us.

This week, you'll meet Emily Morehouse. She is here to make this abstract concept much more concrete and discuss places where the AST can help us write and maintain better code.
