Python: Create-Modify-Reuse

Aimed at all levels of Python developers who are interested in a task-based way of learning Python development, this hands-on book shows how you can efficiently use Python to create robust, real-world applications. After a brief primer on this object-oriented, interactive programming language, you will jump right into practical Python development so that you can create useful, streamlined scripts that are easy to maintain and enhance, and that you can immediately put to use in the real world.

Each chapter features a complete project that you can use as it currently exists or modify to suit your particular purposes. Among these projects you'll find applications that access databases, take advantage of web technologies, facilitate network communications, and more. Plus, you'll also explore more advanced topics such as accessing operating system resources, writing scripts that are easy to read and maintain, and debugging and testing. However, even more important than the technologies you will be introduced to, you will learn how to use Python to solve real challenges.

What you will learn from this book

  • The various technologies and techniques that are available to Python developers

  • Ways to communicate with an SQL database

  • Tips for acting as a web server or communicating with one

  • How to access and manipulate XML files

  • Techniques for building a content management system

  • Ways to access and communicate with your operating system

Who this book is for
