Description

Effective Python aims to provide the reader with an understanding of the “Pythonic” way of writing programs: the best way to use Python. New programmers will learn the best practices of Python’s features. Experienced programmers will learn how to embrace the strangeness of a new tool with confidence.

Like other Effective books, this book will be organized in a series of short items. Each chapter will cover a broad but related set of subjects. Each item will provide clear and concise guidance to the reader about how they can write Python programs more effectively. Each item will provide advice on what to do, what to avoid, how to strike the right balance, and why this is the best choice.
 
Effective Python will prepare growing programmers to make a big impact using Python.
