Mohit Saxena, Python Guide for Beginners
Python is an easy and powerful programming language. It has highly efficient data structures with object-oriented programming approach. Its neat syntax and dynamic typing makes it more efficient. It is the best programming language for rapid application development for many platforms.
Sotaya Yakubu, Starting with Python
Python is an interpreted language and features dynamic system with an automatic memory management. It can be used as a full fledged language, or integrated as a scripting language in another such as C, Java e.t.c The language itself is not limited to a specific programming paradigm, different styles of coding can be used in this language such as; Imperative, Object-oriented, functional and procedural styles.
Alberto Paro, Beginning with Django
What are the success keys for a web framework? Is it easy to use? Is it easy to deploy? Does it provide user satisfaction? Django framework is more that these answers because, in my opinion, is one of the few framework that is able to hit its goal: it “makes it easier to build better Web apps more quickly and with less code”.
Anton Sipos, Better Django Unit Testing Using Factories instead of Fixtures
Unit testing is the key practice for improving software quality. Even though most of us agree with this in principle, all too often when things get difficult programmers end up skipping writing tests. We end up being pragmatic rather than principled, especially when deadlines are involved.
Renato Candido, Python Fabric
Fabric is a Python library and command-line tool for automating tasks of application deployment and system administration via SSH. It provides tools for executing local and remote shell commands and for transferring files through SSH and SFTP, respectively.
W. Matthew Wilson, Python logging module
So I’m forcing myself to use logging in every script I do, no matter how trivial it is, so I can getcomfortable with the python standard library logging module. So far, I’m really happy with it.I’ll start with a script that uses print statements and revise it a few times and show off how logging is a better solution.
Steve Lott, Python, Web Security and Django
Two of the pillars of security are Authentication (who are you?) and Authorization (what are you allowed to do?). Best security practice is never to store a password that can be easily recovered. A hash can be undone eventually, but encryption means all passwords are exposed once the encryption key is available.
George Psarakis, Building a console 2-player chess board game in Python
Python is a very powerful language particularly for writing server-side backend scripts, although one can also use it for web development tasks through the Django framework and it is gaining popularity in that field as well. A very thorough and complete documentation, the huge variety of libraries and open-source projects – easily installed with the package managers and the huge knowledge base in Q&A sites like StackOverflow and mailing lists are among the main characteristics to which the widespread use of Python can be attributed to.
Adam Nelson, Write a Web App and Learn Python
A ‘framework’ is a set of tools and libraries that facilitates the development of a certain type of application. Web frameworks facilitate the development of web applications by allowing languages like Python or Ruby to take advantage of standard methods to complete tasks like interacting with HTTP payloads, or tracking users throughout a site, or constructing basic HTML pages. Leveraging this scaffolding, a developer can focus on creating a web application instead of doing a deep dive on HTTP internals and other lower-level technologies.
Yves J. Hilpisch, Efficient Data and Financial Analytics with Python
Decision makers and analysts being faced with such an environment cannot rely anymore on traditional approaches to process data or to make decisions. In the past, these areas where characterized by highly structured processes which were repeated regularly or when needed.
Josh VanderLinden, Test-Driven Development With Python
Software development is easier and more accessible now than it ever has been. Unfortunately, rapid development speeds offered by modern programming languages make it easy for us as programmers to overlook the possible error conditions in our code and move on to other parts of a project. Automated tests can provide us with a level of certainty that our code really does handle various situations the way we expect it to, and these tests can save hundreds upon thousands of man-hours over the course of a project’s development lifecycle.
Saad Bin Akhlaq, Python Interetors
Python makes a distinction between iterables and iterators, it is quite essential to know the difference between them. Iterators are stateful objects they know how far through their sequence they are. Once they reach their thats is it. Iterables are able to create iterators on demand. Itertool modules includes a set of functions for working with iterable datasets.
