Content: Learn only the essential aspects of Python without cluttering up your mind with features you may never use.
This compact book is not a «best way to write code» type of book; rather, the author goes over his most-used functions, which are all you need to know as a beginner and some way beyond.
Lean Python takes 58 Python methods and functions and whittles them down to 15: as author Paul Gerrard says, «I haven’t found a need for the rest.»
What You’ll Learn:
- Discover lean Python and how to learn just enough to build useful tools;
- Use Python objects, program structure, I/O, modules and more;
- Handle errors and exceptions;
- Test your code;
- Access the Web; do searching; and persist data.
