Core Python Applications Programming (Core)by Wesley J Chun
Synopses & Reviews
The Complete Developer’s Guide to Python
Python is an agile, robust, and expressive programming language that continues to build momentum. It combines the power of compiled languages with the simplicity and rapid development of scripting languages. In Core Python Applications Programming, Third Edition , leading Python developer and corporate trainer Wesley Chun helps you take your Python knowledge to the next level.
This book has everything you need to become a versatile Python developer. You will be introduced to multiple areas of application development and gain knowledge that can be immediately applied to projects, and you will find code samples in both Python 2 and 3, including migration tips if that’s on your roadmap too. Some snippets will even run unmodified on 2.x or 3.x.
Core Python Applications Programming, Third Edition, delivers
In Core Python Applications Programming, leading software engineer and professional trainer Wesley Chun helps developers who are ready to expand their Python skills and go beyond the language and its syntax to learn about how to apply their skills to application programming. Each chapter provides a quick dive or high-level intro into a variety of specific areas of application development. As with all Core Series books, it delivers hundreds of industrial-strength code snippets and examples (in Python 2 and 3), all targeted at professional developers, which contain not only a high-level intro but also provide real-world insights for developing applications in Python. By using a relaxed, conversational, and fun writing style, the author is able to explain complex programming concepts in ways that are easy to understand.
A favorite of Python developers, Core Python enters its second decade with this brand new 3rd edition containing updates to mainstay chapters as well as introducing completely new material on Django, Google App Engine, Google Storage, Twitter, text processing, Google Data API, and Programming Microsoft Office. If you're a Python developer, this is an invaluable addition to your collection!
