· Bewährte Verfahren, Tipps und Tricks für robusten, leistungsfähigen und wartungsfreundlichen Code · Grundlegende Aufgaben besser und effektiver erledigen · Lösungen für das Debuggen, Testen und Optimieren zur Verbesserung von Qualität und Performance Der Einstieg in die Python-Programmierung ist einfach, daher ist die Sprache auch so beliebt. Pythons einzigartige Stärken und Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten sind allerdings nicht immer offensichtlich, und zudem gibt es diverse verborgene Fallstricke, über die man leicht stolpern kann. Dieses Buch vermittelt insbesondere eine Python-typische Herangehensweise an die Programmierung. Brett Slatkin nutzt dabei die Vorzüge von Python zum Schreiben von außerordentlich stabilem und schnellem Code. Er stellt 59 bewährte Verfahren, Tipps und Tricks vor, die er anhand praxisnaher Codebeispiele erläutert. Er orientiert sich dabei an dem kompakten, an Fallbeispielen orientierten Stil von Scott Meyers populärem Buch »Effektiv C++ programmieren«. Auf der Basis seiner jahrelangen Erfahrung mit der Python-Infrastruktur bei Google demonstriert Slatkin weniger bekannte Eigenarten und Sprachelemente, die großen Einfluss auf das Verhalten des Codes und die Performance haben. Sie erfahren, wie sich grundlegende Aufgaben am besten erledigen lassen, damit Sie leichter verständlichen, wartungsfreundlicheren und einfach zu verbessernden Code schreiben können. Aus dem Inhalt: · Umsetzbare Richtlinien für alle wichtigen Bereiche der Entwicklung in Python 2 und 3 mit detaillierten Erklärungen und Beispielen · Funktionen so definieren, dass Code leicht wiederverwendet und Fehler vermieden werden können · Systemverhalten mithilfe von Klassen präzise definieren · Stolpersteine beim Programmieren mit Metaklassen und dynamischen Attributen umgehen · Effizientere Ansätze für Nebenläufigkeit und parallele Ausführung · Tipps und Tricks zur Nutzung von Pythons Standardmodulen · Tools und Best Practices für die Zusammenarbeit mit anderen Entwicklern · Lösungen für das Debuggen, Testen und Optimieren zur Verbesserung von Qualität und Performanc Stimme zum Buch: „Jeder Abschnitt in Slatkins Buch Effektiv Python programmieren stellt eine eigenständige Lektion mit eigenem Quellcode dar. Die Abschnitte lassen sich leicht durchstöbern und können in beliebiger Reihenfolge studiert werden. Ich werde das Buch fortgeschrittenen Einsteigern als kompaktes Nachschlagewerk zu einem breiten Themenspektrum empfehlen.“ Brandon Rhodes, Softwareentwickler bei Dropbox und Vorsitzender der PyCon 2016-2017

"It's easy to start writing code with Python: that's why the language is so immensely popular. However, Python has unique strengths, charms, and expressivity that can be hard to grasp at first -- as well as hidden pitfalls that can easily trip you up if you aren't aware of them. Effective Python will help you harness the full power of Python to write exceptionally robust, efficient, maintainable, and well-performing code. Utilizing the concise, scenario-driven style pioneered in Scott Meyers's best-selling Effective C++, Brett Slatkin brings together 53 Python best practices, tips, shortcuts, and realistic code examples from expert programmers. Through realistic examples, Slatkin uncovers little-known Python quirks, intricacies, and idioms that powerfully impact code behavior and performance. You'll learn how to choose the most efficient and effective way to accomplish key tasks when multiple options exist, and how to write code that's easier to understand, maintain, and improve. Drawing on his deep understanding of Python's capabilities, Slatkin offers practical advice for each major area of development with both Python 3.x and Python 2.x. Coverage includes: * Algorithms * Objects * Concurrency * Collaboration * Built-in modules * Production techniques * And more Each section contains specific, actionable guidelines organized into items, each with carefully worded advice supported by detailed technical arguments and illuminating examples. Using Effective Python, you can systematically improve all the Python code you write: not by blindly following rules or mimicking incomprehensible idioms, but by gaining a deep understanding of the technical reasons why they make sense."--[Source inconnue].
