They are aimed at intermediate programmers; people who have studied Python and are fairly comfortable with basic recursion and object oriented techniques. Each program is very short, never more than a couple of pages and accompanied with a write-up. I have found Python to be an excellent language to express algorithms clearly. Some of the ideas here originated in other programs in other languages. But in most cases I developed code from scratch from just an outline of an idea. From many years of programming these are some of my favorite programs. Many thanks to Paul Carduner and Jeff Elkner for their work on this page, especially for Paul's graphic of Psyltherin (apologies to Harry Potter) and to the Twisted developement team for their Lore documentation generator to which all the other web pages in this collection have been recently adapted.

Dive Into Python. 10 Python pitfalls. (or however many I'll find ;-) These are not necessarily warts or flaws; rather, they are (side effects of) language features that often trip up newbies, and sometimes experienced programmers.
Incomplete understanding of some core Python behavior may cause people to get bitten by these. This document is meant as some sort of guideline to those who are new to Python. It's better to learn about the pitfalls early, than to encounter them in production code shortly before a deadline. :-} It is *not* meant to criticize the language; as said, most of these pitfalls are not due to language flaws. 1. OK, this is a cheesy one to start with. Solution: Indent consistently. 2. People coming from statically typed languages like Pascal and C often assume that Python variables and assignment work the same as in their language of choice. A = b = 3 a = 4 print a, b # 4, 3 However, then they run into trouble when using mutable objects.
A = [1, 2, 3] b = a a.append(4) print b # b is now [1, 2, 3, 4] as well. Python Bibliotheca. Data Structures and Algorithms with Object-Oriented Design Patterns in Python. The Django Book. Ruby. Learn Ruby The Hard Way — Learn Ruby The Hard Way.

Ada puts unique emphasis on, and provides strong support for, good software engineering practices that scale well to very large software systems (millions of lines of code, and very large development teams).
