About the sessions

Introduction to Window Functions
Window functions are an extremely useful, but surprisingly little known feature of most SQL dialects. They let you efficiently calculate aggregated values across partitions in your data, but without condensing each partition into a single row. In this session, you'll write increasingly complex window functions, querying a realistic database to answer real questions.
60 mins
Higher Order Components
Higher-order components (HOC) are a commonly used, little understood design pattern for React, to separate commonly used bits of logic and behaviour and make them reusable. In this session, you'll be taught how an HOC works, and build one, step-by-step, so that you understand the principles behind them.
60 mins
Generators
Generators are one of the most elegant features of the Python language, making it much easier to write memory efficient code, especially when looping through large collections of data. In this session, you'll learn about generators, and write code to solve some challenging problems, ensuring that as well as being able to use them, you really understand how they work.
90 mins
Function decorators
Decorators (used with the @ symbol) are special functions that can be used to extend the behavior of another function. In this session, you'll learn the principles behind decorator functions, and build your own useful decorators that you could start applying to your code straight away.
