Appendix A. Further Reading
There are a large number of books and online resources available for
learning and programming Python. However, if like this book, your
focus is on the use of Python 3, finding reliable information is made
a bit more difficult simply due to the sheer volume of existing
material written for earlier Python versions.
In this appendix, we provide a few selected links to material that may
be particularly useful in the context of Python 3 programming and the
recipes contained in this book. This is by no means an exhaustive
list of resources, so you should definitely check to see if new
titles or more up-to-date editions of these books have been published.
It goes without saying that Python’s
own online documentation is an excellent resource if you need to
delve into the finer details of the language and modules. Just make
sure you’re looking at the documentation for Python 3 and not earlier versions.
Python Enhancement Proposals (PEPs) are
invaluable if you want to understand the motivation for adding new
features to the Python language as well as subtle implementation
details. This is especially true for some of the more advanced
language features. In writing this book, the PEPs were often more
useful than the official documentation.
