Contents:
Part 1. Why it all matters. The bigger picture -- Part 2. Foundations of design. Separation of concerns -- Abstraction and encapsulation -- Designing for high performance -- Testing your software -- Part 3. Nailing down large systems. Separation of concerns in practice -- Extensibiligy and flexibility -- The rules (and exceptions) of inheritance -- Keeping things lightweight -- Achieving loose coupling -- Part 4. What's next? Onward and upward.
Summary: Professional-quality code does more than just run without bugs. It's clean, readable, and easy to maintain. To step up from a capable Python coder to a professional developer, you need to learn industry standards for coding style, application desgin, and development process. That's where this book is indispensable. "Practices of the Python Pro" teaches you to design and write professional-quality software that's understandable, maintainable, and extensible. Dane Hillard is a Python pro who has helped many dozens of developers make this step, and he knows what it takes. With helpful examples and exercises, he teaches you when, why, and how to modularize your code, how to improve quality by reducing complexity, and much more. Embrace these core principles, and your code will become easier for you and others to read, maintain, and reuse.
