The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Python!

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Python!
Welcome to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Python. This guide is currently under heavy active development. If you’d like to help, fork us on GitHub! This opinionated guide exists to provide both novice and expert Python developers a best-practice handbook to the installation, configuration, and usage of Python on a daily basis. Getting Started This part of the guide focuses on setting up your Python environment. Properly Install Python Writing Great Code This part of the guide focuses on best practices for writing Python code. Scenario Guide This part of the guide focuses on tool and module advice based on different scenarios. Shipping Great Code This part of the guide focuses on deploying your Python code. Additional Notes This part of the guide, which is mostly prose, begins with some background information about Python, then focuses on next steps. Contribution notes and legal information are here (for those interested).

Improve Your Python: Python Classes and Object Oriented Programming The class is a fundamental building block in Python. It is the underpinning for not only many popular programs and libraries, but the Python standard library as well. Understanding what classes are, when to use them, and how they can be useful is essential, and the goal of this article. In the process, we'll explore what the term Object-Oriented Programming means and how it ties together with Python classes. Everything Is An Object... What is the class keyword used for, exactly?   Google Developers Welcome to Google's Python Class -- this is a free class for people with a little bit of programming experience who want to learn Python. The class includes written materials, lecture videos, and lots of code exercises to practice Python coding. These materials are used within Google to introduce Python to people who have just a little programming experience. The first exercises work on basic Python concepts like strings and lists, building up to the later exercises which are full programs dealing with text files, processes, and http connections. The class is geared for people who have a little bit of programming experience in some language, enough to know what a "variable" or "if statement" is. Beyond that, you do not need to be an expert programmer to use this material.

Is it hashable? Fun and games with hashing in Python - Lerner Consulting Blog One of the basic data types that Python developers learn to use, and to appreciate, is the dictionary, or “dict.” This is the Python term for what other languages call hashes, associative arrays, hashmaps, or hash tables. Dictionaries are pervasive in Python, both in the programs that we write, and in the implementation of the language; behind every namespace or object, at least one dictionary is behind the scenes. Dictionaries are fairly easy to use, once you get used to the rules of the road: A dictionary contains pairs, not individual elements.

AI Materials Python Basics Required Files You can download all of the files associated with the Python mini-tutorial as a zip archive: SAP is now hosting VMs in its cloud. Just don't call it HANA SAP probably isn't high on the list of companies you'd contemplate as a host of a virtual machine in the cloud, but the company's just doubled down on a service that offers just that. The company's not trying to be a general-purpose cloud platform. Instead, the offering is part of the recently-re-named SAP Cloud Platform. Previously known as SAP HANA Cloud Platform, the company changed the name because it has figured out that it slapped the “HANA” name on too many things.

Style Guide for Python Code Code should be written in a way that does not disadvantage other implementations of Python (PyPy, Jython, IronPython, Cython, Psyco, and such). For example, do not rely on CPython's efficient implementation of in-place string concatenation for statements in the form a += b or a = a + b . This optimization is fragile even in CPython (it only works for some types) and isn't present at all in implementations that don't use refcounting. In performance sensitive parts of the library, the ''.join() form should be used instead. This will ensure that concatenation occurs in linear time across various implementations.

Python equivalent of Java .jar files Home > python > Python equivalent of Java .jar files Problem In Java, you can distribute your project in JAR format. It is essentially a ZIP file with some metadata. The project can be launched easily: $ java -jar project.jar What is its Python equivalent?

A guide to Python Namespaces This post is part of the Powerful Python series where I talk about features of the Python language that make the programmer’s job easier. The Powerful Python page contains links to more articles as well as a list of future articles. Namespaces are a fundamental idea in Python and can be very helpful in structuring and organizing your code (especially if you have a large enough project). However, namespaces might be a somewhat difficult concept to grasp and get used to if you’re new to programming or even coming from another programming language (in my case, Java). Here’s my attempt to make namespaces just a little easier to understand.
