Treading on Python Volume 2: Intermediate Python

Do you want to take your Python to the next level?Python is easy to learn. You can learn the basics in a day and be productive with it. But there are more advanced constructs that you will eventually run across if you spend enough time with it. Don't be confused by these. Learn them, embrace them, and improve your code and others. Combines Three Guides into one BookThis book is composed of three popular guides:Guide to: Functional Python & Comprehension ConstructsGuide to: Learning Iteration & Generators in PythonGuide to: Learning Python Decorators Write Python code like the mastersThese constructs, while not necessary per se, allow you to be more succinct, re-use code, and think about code in a different way. You will learn:How the constructs workWhen to use themReal life examples from the standard libraryUnderstand other's codeThis book covers many of these intermediate constructs that are available in Python. The book covers both Python 2 and 3. Topics include: Functional programming List comprehensionsGenerator expressionsSet & dict comprehensions Iteration Generators Closures DecoratorsBased on popular tutorials and sessions I have taught material similar to these constructs at popular tutorials at conferences such as PyCon, OSCON and Strata (and other conferences). This book is based on my experience teaching and using Python for many years. I hope you learn something while in the course of your reading. Maybe it will help you in your next task, code review, or job interview.
