Whether you're new to the language or you've been using it for years, Wesley Chun will teach you how to program Python right. Chun's Core Python Programming, Second Edition goes way beyond syntax, illuminating what your code's really doing, and why.
This book combines a thorough introduction to Python's core features with a deeper dive into the advanced areas you need to be fully effective: regular expressions, networking, multithreading, web development, and writing Python extensions in lower-level languages.
Python's been extensively improved since this book's widely praised first edition. Chun captures just about every significant enhancement, from new-style classes to improved exception handling. You'll also find completely new chapters on Internet client and database development. And, as you'd expect from a Core Series book, everything's written for working developers -- with realistic examples, not "toy" code. Bill Camarda, from the December 2006 Read Only
