Programming in Python 3: A Complete Introduction to the Python Language

Python 3 is the best version of the language

yet: It is more powerful, convenient, consistent, and expressive than
ever before. Now, leading Python programmer Mark Summerfield
demonstrates how to write code that takes full advantage of Python 3’s
features and idioms. The first book written from a completely “Python
3” viewpoint, Programming in Python 3 brings together
all the knowledge you need to write any program, use any standard or
third-party Python 3 library, and create new library modules of your

draws on his many years of Python experience to share deep insights
into Python 3 development you won’t find anywhere else. He begins by
illuminating Python’s “beautiful heart”: the eight key elements of
Python you need to write robust, high-performance programs. Building on
these core elements, he introduces new topics designed to strengthen
your practical expertise–one concept and hands-on example at a time.
This book’s coverage includes

  • Developing in Python using procedural, object-oriented, and functional programming paradigms
  • Creating custom packages and modules
  • Writing and reading binary, text, and XML files, including optional compression, random access, and text and XML parsing
  • Leveraging advanced data types, collections, control structures, and functions
  • Spreading program workloads across multiple processes and threads
  • Programming SQL databases and key-value DBM files
  • Utilizing Python’s regular expression mini-language and module
  • Building usable, efficient, GUI-based applications
  • Advanced
    programming techniques, including generators, function and class
    decorators, context managers, descriptors, abstract base classes,
    metaclasses, and more

Programming in Python 3serves
as both tutorial and language reference, and it is accompanied by
extensive downloadable example code–all of it tested with the final
version of Python 3 on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.
