It has been a long time coming, but finally this book has been updated. With the 4th edition comes a big change. This edition has been updated to ONLY cover Python 3.x. This is a great book and will make a great addition if you want to learn more about developing applications with Python. This book is over 1600 pages long. This makes it particularly heavy. I do not recommend that this book be kept anywhere that it can fall from. It will hurt if you happen to get in its way. I have greatly enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it for reading.






Programming Python: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

Once you've come to grips with the core Python language, learning how to build Python applications presents a far more interesting challenge. Tap this book's wealth of practical advice, snippets of code, and patterns of program design to take your Python skills to the next level.

You'll start with in-depth discussions of core concepts and then progress toward complete programs in different application domains, including:

-GUI programming

-Internet scripting

-Parallel processing

-Database management

-Networked applications

-System administration

-Text processing

Most programming experts consider this classic book, now updated for Python 3.x, to be the industry standard for learning Python application programming. With clear and concise explanations of Python syntax and programming techniques, and numerous examples that illustrate both correct usage and common idioms, Programming Python shows you the right way to code with Python.

Completely revised and improved, the second edition of Programming Python is an excellent compendium of material geared toward the more knowledgeable Python developer. It includes dozens of reusable scripts for common scripting tasks, and is one of the best available sources of information for this popular object-oriented scripting language.

In over 1,200 pages of material, this book offers an extremely comprehensive guide to Python development. Though his book is densely packed within formation, Mark Lutz is a lively and witty writer whose focus is on getting things done using the natural strengths of the Python language. To that end, after an introduction and history of the language, the book show to use Python for performing automated tasks with files and directories (for example, for doing backups both locally and on Web servers).

Not only will this book teach you more about Python, but it will also give you a library of code that you can use as is or adapt for your own projects.
