of course, all of the codes of this books are written on 2.7 version but the online support of this book support 3.2 codes. Therefore, I am able to learn python network without figuring out how to port 2.7 version code into 3.2 code on the Internet.
Since I'm Korean, I sometimes have a hard-time understanding what it says but in most cases, it is well written enough for me (a foreigner) to catch the point.
I think Python would be more beautiful language if you learn about network based on python.
And ... it's well enough written to be enjoyable reading, pretty much wherever you open the book.
I have to note that there are a couple of very low ratings here from a couple of folks who expected this to be a Python 3 book. I expected, and received, a book covering Python 2.5-2.7. If that's what you're after, I suggest you mentally subtract those ratings from the average. Their complaints with the publisher may be fair, but they tell you nothing about the quality of the real book.
I am building a home control system using a Raspberry Pi and found many answers to socket programming here.
Good book, easy to understand - if you are a Python Programmer already. Don't think it would be a good "starter book".
i expect an explanation about libraries, how to's excercises like "python from novice to expert" but isn't
My primary need for this book was getting some examples and discussions around web/screen scraping. I was glad to find that this book discusses the ‘mechanize’ module.
What I really like about this book is that it gives real-world examples with plenty of code, so if you are the type who learns by doing, this book is a great resource to get started.
This book captured attention from the very first chapter (Introduction) where it uses a code example to show how to get latitude and longitude json from Google Maps URL. It shows how easy it is to work with web services API and use them in your Python code.
I highly recommend this book if you have intermediate-level understanding of Python and want some help getting started with web services.
As I write this review, the Third Edition of this book is out which you can preorder. So you might want to consider that.
