Daniel Arbuckle's Mastering Python


Key Features

  • Covers the latest and advanced concepts of Python such as parallel processing with Python 3.6
  • Explore the Python language from its basic installation and setup to concepts such as reactive programming and microservices
  • Get introduced to the mechanism for rewriting code in a compiled language along with ctypes and Cython tools

Book Description

Daniel Arbuckle's Mastering Python covers the basics of operating in a Python development environment, before moving on to more advanced topics. Daniel presents you with real-world solutions to Python 3.6 and advanced-level concepts, such as reactive programming, microservices, ctypes, and Cython tools.

You don't need to be familiar with the Python language to use this book, as Daniel starts with a Python primer. Throughout, Daniel highlights the major aspects of managing your Python development environment, shows you how to handle parallel computation, and helps you to master asynchronous I/O with Python 3.6 to improve performance. Finally, Daniel will teach you the secrets of metaprogramming and unit testing in Python, helping you acquire the perfect skillset to be a Python expert.

Daniel will get you up to speed on everything from basic programming practices to high-end tools and techniques, things that will help set you apart as a successful Python programmer.
