Write Python code like the masters
These constructs, while not necessary per se, allow you to be more succinct, re-use code, and think about code in a different way. You will learn:
Understand other's code
- How the constructs work
- When to use them
- Real life examples from the standard library
This book covers many of these intermediate constructs that are available in Python. The book covers both Python 2 and 3.
Based on popular tutorials and sessions
- Functional programming
- List comprehensions
- Generator expressions
- Set & dict comprehensions
I have taught material similar to these constructs at popular tutorials at conferences such as PyCon, OSCON and Strata (and other conferences). This book is based on my experience teaching and using Python for many years. I hope you learn something while in the course of your reading. Maybe it will help you in your next task, code review, or job interview.
