Intuitive Python (The Pragmatic Programmer)
Wednesday, 28 July 2021

This book, subtitled "Productive Development for Projects That Last"  sets out to be a guide to help you hone your skills and sculpt a Python project that can stand the test of time. David Muller shows how to run static analysis tools to detect and eliminate classes of bugs before you run code, and how to experiment with Python's concurrency model and develop patterns for using Python's thread and process abstractions to their full potential. Later chapters look at using Python's type hinting system: mypy, downloading and running third-party Python packages safely without compromising on security.
