Part II. Getting Down to Business
We’ve got our towels, a Python interpreter, virtual environments, and an editor or IDE—we’re ready to get down to business. This part does not teach you the language; “Learning Python” lists great resources that already do that. Instead, we want you to come out of this part feeling froody, like a real Python insider, knowing the tricks of some of the best Pythonistas in our community. This part includes the following chapters:
- Chapter 4, Writing Great Code
We briefly cover style, conventions, idioms, and gotchas that can help new Pythonistas.
- Chapter 5, Reading Great Code
We take you on a guided tour of parts of our favorite Python libraries, with the hope that you’ll be encouraged to do more reading on your own.
- Chapter 6, Shipping Great Code
We briefly talk about the Python Packaging Authority and how to load libraries to PyPI, plus options to build and ship executables.
