Dead Simple Python (No Starch Press)
Monday, 19 December 2022

Subtitled "Idiomatic Python for the Impatient Programmer", this book is a thorough introduction to every feature of the Python language for programmers who are impatient to write production code. Instead of revisiting elementary computer science topics. Jason C. McDonald dives deep into idiomatic Python patterns so readers can write professional Python programs in no time.

<ASIN:1718500920>

After speeding through Python’s basic syntax and setting up a complete programming environment, McDonald shows how to work with Python’s dynamic data typing, its support for both functional and object-oriented programming techniques, special features like generator expressions, and advanced topics like concurrency. He also covers how to package, distribute, debug, and test Python projects.
