Great Python Book For Professionals
David takes a fresh take on programming and esp. programming with python. He combines OO and functional styles to create programs that are shorter and easier to understand. In addition to providing documentation and examples of python modules related to text processing, David says just as much about good programming style. He shows how OO programming is more than just about smart data, i.e. it is more about what services objects provide, that your coding style should test for services the object provides rather than trying to find out what it is. David also addresses issues specific to Perl/Python like Schwartzian sort, which should greatly help if sorting is the bottleneck in your code. I must confess I have not read the state machine stuff yet as I am thoroughly enjoying all the other stuff little by little. If you are a professional Python programmer you should definitely get this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
