Fluent Python : Clear, Concise, and Effective Programming


This book covers:

  • Python data model: understand how special methods are the key to the consistent behavior of objects
  • Data structures: take full advantage of built-in types, and understand the text vs bytes duality in the Unicode age
  • Functions as objects: view Python functions as first-class objects, and understand how this affects popular design patterns
  • Object-oriented idioms: build classes by learning about references, mutability, interfaces, operator overloading, and multiple inheritance
  • Control flow: leverage context managers, generators, coroutines, and concurrency with the concurrent.futures and asyncio packages
  • Metaprogramming: understand how properties, attribute descriptors, class decorators, and metaclasses work
