Lean Python : Learn Just Enough Python to Build Useful Tools (Paperback) (Paul Gerrard)
about this item
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."
- 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
