Python for Professionals
Learn to be a Python expert in ten easy lessons!
This book is intended for the professional programmer who wants to learn Python for their place of business, or simply to extend their knowledge. You will learn the basics of the language–from how to define variables and implement looping and conditional constructs, to working with existing code. Once we have established the baseline for writing code in Python, you’ll learn how to create your own functions and classes, how to extend existing code, and how to work with Python-specific things like comprehensions and generators. With a solid foundation, you will then move on to learn about the existing Python libraries, called packages, and how to use them, as well as discovering little tips and tricks that will make you a hit with all the programmers at work, and really aid you in nailing that programming interview.
