Mastering Object-oriented Python by Steven Lott

By Steven Lott

This functional example-oriented consultant will train you complex techniques of object-oriented programming in Python. This ebook will current certain examples of virtually all the particular approach names that help developing periods that combine seamlessly with Python's integrated gains. it is going to provide help to use JSON, YAML, Pickle, CSV, XML, Shelve, and SQL to create continual items and transmit gadgets among methods. The e-book additionally covers logging, warnings, unit checking out, configuration documents, and the way to paintings with the command line.

This booklet is damaged into 3 significant components: Pythonic periods through distinctive tools; patience and Serialization; checking out, Debugging, Deploying, and keeping. The specified tools are damaged down into a number of concentration parts: initialization, fundamentals, characteristic entry, callables, contexts, bins, collections, numbers, and extra complicated ideas akin to decorators and mixin periods.

Beginning Python: From Novice to Professional (2nd Edition)

Achieve a basic figuring out of Python's syntax and contours with the second one version of starting Python, an up–to–date creation and sensible reference. masking a big selection of Python–related programming subject matters, together with addressing language internals, database integration, community programming, and internet providers, you'll be guided by means of sound improvement rules.

Bioinformatics Programming Using Python: Practical Programming for Biological Data

Powerful, versatile, and simple to take advantage of, Python is a perfect language for construction software program instruments and purposes for all times technology learn and improvement. This special e-book indicates you the way to software with Python, utilizing code examples taken without delay from bioinformatics. very quickly, you'll be utilizing refined recommendations and Python modules which are quite powerful for bioinformatics programming.

Bioinformatics Programming utilizing Python is ideal for somebody concerned with bioinformatics -- researchers, aid employees, scholars, and software program builders attracted to writing bioinformatics functions. You'll locate it beneficial no matter if you already use Python, write code in one other language, or haven't any programming event in any respect. It's a good self-instruction software, in addition to a convenient reference while dealing with the demanding situations of real-life programming tasks.
* familiarize yourself with Python's basics, together with how one can boost easy functions
* the best way to use Python modules for trend matching, dependent textual content processing, on-line info retrieval, and database entry
* observe generalized styles that disguise a wide share of ways Python code is utilized in bioinformatics
* the right way to practice the rules and strategies of object-oriented programming
* enjoy the "tips and traps" part in each one bankruptcy

Programming in Python 3: A Complete Introduction to the Python Language (2nd Edition)

A absolutely Revised variation that includes New fabric on Coroutines, Debugging, trying out, Parsing, String Formatting, and extra


Python three is the easiest model of the language but: it's extra robust, handy, constant, and expressive than ever prior to. Now, major Python programmer Mark Summerfield demonstrates the right way to write code that takes complete good thing about Python 3's beneficial properties and idioms. Programming in Python three, moment version, brings jointly all of the wisdom you want to write any application, use any commonplace or third-party Python three library, and create new library modules of your own.


Summerfield attracts on his decades of Python event to proportion deep insights into Python three improvement you won't locate at any place else. He starts off through illuminating Python's "beautiful heart": the 8 key parts of Python you want to write powerful, high-performance courses. development on those middle components, he introduces new issues designed to bolster your useful expertise-one idea and hands-on instance at a time. assurance comprises
* constructing in Python utilizing procedural, objectoriented, and sensible programming paradigms
* growing customized applications and modules
* Writing and studying binary, textual content, and XML records, together with non-compulsory compression, random entry, and textual content and XML parsing
* Leveraging complicated information varieties, collections, keep an eye on constructions, and services
* Spreading software workloads throughout a number of techniques and threads
* Programming SQL databases and key--value DBM records
* Debugging techniques-and utilizing attempt pushed improvement to prevent insects within the first position
* using Python's common expression mini-language and module
* Parsing suggestions, together with the way to use the third-party PyParsing and PLY modules
* construction usable, effective, GUI-based purposes
* complicated programming options, together with turbines, functionality and sophistication decorators, context managers, descriptors, summary base periods, metaclasses, coroutines, and extra


Programming in Python three, moment variation, serves as either instructional and language reference. It assumes a few earlier programming event, and is followed by way of large downloadable instance code-all of it established with Python three on home windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. This variation covers Python three. zero and three. 1, and because of the Python language moratorium it's also legitimate for Python three. 2 which has an identical language as Python three. 1.

Example text

Each subclass provides a unique implementation of the _points() method. All the subclasses have identical signatures: they have the same methods and attributes. Objects of these three subclasses can be used interchangeably in an application. If we simply use characters for suits, we will be able to create Card instances as shown in the following code snippet: cards = [ AceCard('A', '♠'), NumberCard('2','♠'), NumberCard('3','♠'), ] We enumerated the class, rank, and suit for several cards in a list.

Def f(): ... pass ... 13721893899491988 This shows us that a do-nothing function call is slightly less expensive than a donothing method invocation. The overhead in this case is almost 44 percent. In some cases, OS overheads may be a measurable component of the performance. These tend to vary based on factors that are hard to control. We can use the repeat() function instead of the timeit() function in this module. It will collect multiple samples of the basic timing to allow further analysis of OS effects on performance.

Width The Rectangle class has a method that uses two attributes to return a value. The attributes have not been initialized anywhere. This is legal Python. It's a little strange to avoid specifically setting attributes, but it's valid. area() 104 While this is legal, it's a potential source of deep confusion, which is a good reason to avoid it. [ 26 ] Chapter 1 However, this kind of design grants flexibility, so there could be times when we needn't set all of the attributes in the __init__() method.
