Publisher Comments:

If you've mastered Python's fundamentals, you're ready to start using it to get real work done. Programming Python will show you how, with in-depth tutorials on the language's primary application domains: system administration, GUIs, and the Web. You'll also explore how Python is used in databases, networking, front-end scripting layers, text processing, and more. This book focuses on commonly used tools and libraries to give you a comprehensive understanding of Pythons many roles in practical, real-world programming.

You'll learn language syntax and programming techniques in a clear and concise manner, with lots of examples that illustrate both correct usage and common idioms. Completely updated for version 3.x, Programming Python also delves into the language as a software development tool, with many code examples scaled specifically for that purpose.

Topics include:

  • Quick Python tour: Build a simple demo that includes data representation, object-oriented programming, object persistence, GUIs, and website basics
  • System programming: Explore system interface tools and techniques for command-line scripting, processing files and folders, running programs in parallel, and more
  • GUI programming: Learn to use Pythons tkinter widget library
  • Internet programming: Access client-side network protocols and email tools, use CGI scripts, and learn website implementation techniques
  • More ways to apply Python: Implement data structures, parse text-based information, interface with databases, and extend and embed Python

Book News Annotation:

This lengthy volume explains how to write code using the Python open source programming language for standalone programs and scripting applications in a wide variety of domains, based a training course used by Lutz, a professional developer and Python trainer, teacher, and author. Focusing on the core Python language instead of specific applications, each chapter consists of a self-contained lesson on a key component of the language. The book presents fundamentals in depth and covers aspects such as types and operations, statements and syntax, functions, modules, classes, and exceptions and tools. This edition emphasizes Python 3.0 (while still covering 2.6); reorganizes and expands some material; and includes new chapters on advanced topics like object-oriented programming, Unicode and byte strings and string and file differences, managed attribute tools and descriptors, function and class decorators, and metaclasses. No previous experience with the language is required; the book is aimed at professional developers and those new to programming. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
