Book description

Seattle locals and tourists alike flock to Pike Place each day to watch the fish fly. But Pike Place Fish is about more than just crowd-pleasing entertainment --- there is an underlying philosophy at work that has made the market both wildly successful and internationally renowned.

In an unusual combination of oral biography and practical business blueprint, Crother and the fishmongers take you behind the scenes at the famous market to illustrate the PPF philosophy and reveal the underlying assumptions that have made PPF the international phenomenon it is today.

Catch! shows that to be "ordinary" is to be a victim of circumstances, responding to whatever comes one's way. To be "great" is to realize that anyone can live an extraordinary life. At Pike Place Fish, everyone is responsible for transforming themselves from ordinary to great by creating their own reality. The authors explore the issues of goals --- financial, personal and humanitarian --- and intention, showing how the crew itself creates these goals and works towards them in collaboration.

Most importantly, Catch! examines the power of possibility and shows how you can achieve greatness in your own life. Catch! explores such guiding principles as coaching and acknowledgment that are lacking in many businesses, and shows that you, too, can be the prime mover in your own experience.

ロバストPython ―クリーンで保守しやすいコードを書く

by Patrick Viafore, 鈴木 駿, 長尾 高弘

Pythonはシンプルな構文で読みやすいプログラミング言語ですが、コードをロバストにする機能も備わっています。本書では、Python 3.5から導入された型ヒントを使って、ロバストなPythonコードを記述する方法にアプローチします。全4部構成のうち、Ⅰ部とⅡ部ではPythonにおける型ヒントの位置づけや組み込み型について基本的な事柄をしっかりおさえ、ユーザ定義型を使う方法、部分型、プロトコル、pydanticによる実行時型チェックなど、Pythonの型システムを最大限に活用する方法を詳しく説明します。Ⅲ部は依存関係や設計手法について、Ⅳ部はセーフティネットとして高度なテスト手法を扱います。本書の内容を理解すれば、クリーンで保守しやすいPythonコードが書けるようになります。
