Review: Expert Python Programming

As a result of these reviews I’d decided that, although the book looked interesting, I wouldn’t be investing in a copy for myself; but when the publishers contacted me directly with the offer of a free review copy, I accepted. You may wonder: Why the need for a book on expert Python programming? Doesn’t Python value simplicity and transparency above all else? (Language lawyers and golfers, look elsewhere!)

Why any book on Python, when the online documentation is so well put together? Treading on Python Series: Intermediate Python Programming: Learn Decorators, Generators, Functional Programming and More eBook: Matt Harrison: Amazon.co.uk: Kindle Store. Black Hat Python: Python Programming for Hackers and Pentesters. So many good points in this gem of a book, so little space.

Black Hat Python: Python Programming for Hackers and Pentesters

If you enjoyed gray hat, Violent Python, Hacking Ciphers with Python, etc. you will LOVE this latest addition to your toolbox. DO use the generous "look inside" here to compare it with gray, but in short, there are few comparisons-- this text plays OFFENSE, not defense. Most of even the newer hacking tomes still assume that step by step, Metasploit, trial and error, specific packet sniffing/NMAP, etc. are "current. " Those texts were out of date with Stuxnet! Today's leading edge hacks simply are NOT piecemeal probes and social engineering, they are more likely full featured malware that surrounds the o/s with your own vm, and CONTROLS the kernel and o/s, rather than injecting pieces as the sole sploit. Five years ago it cost nearly $40,000 to buy a clean, close zero day, and thousands to rent a well proxied botnet-- today they are free or very cheap!

Effective Python: 59 Specific Ways to Write Better Python. Most Python developers are familiar with the widespread mantra that "[t]here should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.”

In Python itself, it is often the case that there is one obvious and well-established One Way To Do It™. But as a community – and even as organizations and teams – we frequently fail to make use of customary One Way™ approaches. We contribute code in a variety of styles, and to varying degrees of re-inventing Python's included wheels. This is hardly a fault of the language development community, which is mindful of the One Way™ principle in design discussions.

Nor is it due to lack of community-established practices, which are spread around in PEPs, high-impact open source projects, mailing list advice, and the blogs of prominent community members. Learning Python Design Patterns. This is one of those book that you read twice. When you get it in your hands, you comfortably guess you will get to the last page in forty minutes, before the train enters the station... it's so short! Then, as time passes and you get through the pages, you start thinking that the paragraph you just finished reading was so intense and plenty of knowledge that you will need to get back to it later, without hurry.

Python Cookbook, 3rd Edition - O'Reilly Media. This book is not targeted at new Python programmers, but that's where I'm at. The best way for me to learn a new scripting language is to dive right in and try to write something useful, and that was my goal for the "Python Cookbook". I also had "Learning Python" handy to cover any of the basics. My first Python script was written to read in lists of subnets from two separate files and check that every subnet in list B was also in list A. I used Recipe 13.3 to parse the command line options.
