Series Effective Developer's Library Developer's Library Developer's Library
Description Harness Python’s full power to write exceptionally robust and well-performing code. Using the concise, scenario-driven style pioneered in Scott Meyers’ best-selling "Effective C++", Brett Slatkin brings together 59 Python best practices, tips, and shortcuts, and explains them with realistic code examples. Improve the quality, reliability, speed, maintainability, and usability of all your Python programs. Mark Summerfield identifies well-proven design patterns that are useful in Python, illuminates them with expert-quality code, and explains why some object-oriented design patterns are irrelevant to Python. The definitive reference guide to the Python programming language — the one authoritative handbook that reliably untangles and explains both the core Python language and the most essential parts of the Python library. Designed for the professional programmer, the book is concise, to the point, and highly accessible. Building on his popular Python Module of the Week blog series, author and Python expert Doug Hellmann focuses on “showing” not “telling” virtually every important area of the Python 2.7 library through concise, stand-alone source code/output examples, designed for easy learning and reuse.
