[ DABEAZ LLC]
Dabeaz LLC is David Beazley, an independent software developer and book author living in the city of Chicago. I primarily work on programming tools, provide custom software development, and teach practical programming courses for software developers, scientists, and engineers. I am best known for my work with the Python programming language where I have created several open-source packages (e.g., Swig and PLY). I am also the author of the Python Essential Reference (Addison-Wesley) and Python Cookbook, 3rd Ed. (O'Reilly). Although Python is my current language of choice, I also have significant experience with systems programming in C, C++, and assembly language.
(6/1/13) The Python Cookbook, 3rd Edition is released and available. Get it, blow your mind, and explore the fun of uninhibited Python 3 programming.
(4/1/13) I gave two tutorials at PyCon 2013. The first one explored some fun problems involving public data hacking while the second one explored Python 3 Metaprogramming. I also gave a last-minute fun presentation about using Python to control a CNC mill for making toys.
(3/15/12) I was a keynote speaker at PyCon 2012 where I gave a talk about PyPy. Watch the video!
(11/15/11) You can now watch the talk I gave about the GIL at RuPy [blip.tv].
(02/17/11) PLY-3.4 has been released. This version patches a few things up for Python-3.2.
(10/06/10) I just posted the official errata for the Python Essential Reference, 4th Edition.
(01/20/10) The Python Essential Reference is reviewed on Slashdot. The book hits the "sweet spot of concise usefulness."
(7/19/09) The Python Essential Reference, 4th Edition is now available! This is the best edition yet with extended coverage of advanced Python features such as generators, coroutines, context managers, and more. Covers both Python 2.6 and Python 3.0.
