Top Customer Reviews
This book is a very good complement for medium or advanced Python developers, not because it will give hard core deep details of all Python internals, but because it delivers to the reader a broad range of subjects that makes the Python programmer a comprehensive developer, giving the ability of carrying forward complex projects in the real life day to day.
Even so, this book explains several interesting subjects, not frequently addressed from the specific Python point of view, like concurrency, useful Python design patterns, or optimization.
In the broader area, it addresses several subjects that are very related to Python programming but are not Python itself, like buildbots, packaging, test driven development, how to properly document your project, etc.
In total, a valuable book for those that want to enhance their developing skills.
Updated to the latest stable version of the language (Python 3.5), the book covers topics such as: Conventions and best practices adopted in the Python community, Python Package for production use, extend Python with other programming languages, concurrent python.
Its authors are an experienced Python developers who also happens to be an excellent writers.
Given my experience and goals, this book was a perfect read if you want to improve the quality and performance of your Python code.
A good buy, recommended
