About this book

Python is a dynamic programming language that's used in a wide range of domains thanks to its simple yet powerful nature. Although writing Python code is easy, making it readable, reusable, and easy to maintain is challenging. Complete with best practices, useful tools, and standards implemented by professional Python developers, the third edition of Expert Python Programming will help you overcome this challenge.

The book will start by taking you through the new features in Python 3.7. You'll then learn the advanced components of Python syntax, in addition to understanding how to apply concepts of various programming paradigms, including object-oriented programming, functional programming, and event-driven programming. This book will also guide you through learning the best naming practices, writing your own distributable Python packages, and getting up to speed with automated ways of deploying your software on remote servers. You’ll discover how to create useful Python extensions with C, C++, Cython, and CFFI. Furthermore, studying about code management tools, writing clear documentation, and exploring test-driven development will help you write clean code.

By the end of the book, you will have become an expert in writing efficient and maintainable Python code.

I wanted to improve my python skills but it is too much about package setup and not about "expert Python programming". Package setup is important but not for me.
Testo ottimo ed accurato, in qualche punto fin troppo dettagliato. Purtroppo alcuni argomenti sono fuori dalla mia portata
El documento es una buena referencia bibliográfica.
