"Feels like Neo learning Jiu jitsu in the Matrix." - John Beauford (@johnbeauford)

"I just wanted to let you know what an excellent book this is... I keep going back to your book to learn Python." - Fahad Qazi, London, UK

"Thanks. Keep up the good work. Your chapter on decorators is the best I have seen on that topic." - Leon Tietz, Minnesota, USA

"Powerful Python is already helping me get huge optimization gains." - Timothy Dobbins (@TmthyDobbins)

"What have I found good and valuable about the book so far? Everything honestly. The clear explanations, solid code examples have really helped me advance as a Python coder... Thank you! It has really helped me grasp some advanced concepts that I felt were beyond my abilities." - Nick S., Colorado, USA

For data scientists, back-end engineers, web developers, sysadmins, devops, QA testers and more. What's included:

  • An unrelenting selective spotlight on what's most valuable and impactful to working, full-time, professional Python developers
  • Well-researched, detailed, realistic code on almost every page, powerfully illustrating key points. Very little "toy code"
  • How to use decorators to add rich features to functions and classes; untangle distinct, frustratingly intertwined concerns in your code; and build powerful, extensible software frameworks
  • How to use Python in ways that incentivize other developers to use and re-use your code, again and again... amplifying the impact of the code you write, and boosting your reputation among your peers
  • Powerfully and easily weave iterators and generators throughout your applications, making them massively scalable, highly performant, and far more readable and maintainable
  • How to fully leverage Python's exception and error model... giving you a detailed understanding even experienced Pythonistas often lack, and putting some of the most powerfully Pythonic exception-handling patterns in your toolbox
  • How "magic methods" imbue natural, readable, expressive syntax into your classes and objects... and how to "break the rules" to craft stunningly intuitive, compellingly reusable library interfaces
  • Valuable and powerful design patterns, and how Python's special language features give you uniquely powerful implementations not possible in other languages
  • Deep and detailed instruction on how to write practical, realistic unit tests... using test-driven development to easily get into a state of flow... where you find yourself implementing feature after feature, keeping your focus with ease for long periods of time
  • How to rapidly set up effective logging for scripts, sprawling Python applications, and everything in between
  • An enthusiastic and unapologetic focus on Python 3, and what makes it great... with full explanation and support for getting the same results with Python 2.7
