PyCon 2010: The Mighty Dictionary

At PyCon 2010, Brandon Craig Rhodes delivered a presentation titled “The Mighty Dictionary.” The visual presents what appears to be a slide from that presentation, showing a snapshot of code alongside a graphical representation of a dictionary’s hash table and its collision rate. The code snippet is `d = dict.fromkeys(words[:850])` with a comment indicating “4% full again — collision rate 33%.” This suggests an exploration into the efficiency and behavior of Python dictionaries under certain conditions. In the lower right, there’s a person, possibly the presenter, standing at a podium, indicating an educational or lecture setting.
