The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Python! Greetings, Earthling! Welcome to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Python. This is a living, breathing guide. If you’d like to contribute, fork us on GitHub! This handcrafted 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. This guide is opinionated in a way that is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike Python’s official documentation. Let’s get started! Getting Started with Python New to Python? Properly Install Python Writing Great Python Code This part of the guide focuses on the best-practices for writing Python code. Scenario Guide for Python Applications This part of the guide focuses on tool and module advice based on different scenarios. Shipping Great Python Code This part of the guide focuses on deploying your Python code. Python Development Environments Additional Notes Note Contribution notes and legal information (for those interested).

Start Programming with Python Google Python Style Guide No whitespace inside parentheses, brackets or braces. No whitespace before a comma, semicolon, or colon. Do use whitespace after a comma, semicolon, or colon except at the end of the line. Yes: if x == 4: print x, y x, y = y, x No: if x == 4 : print x , y x , y = y , x No whitespace before the open paren/bracket that starts an argument list, indexing or slicing. Yes: dict['key'] = list[index] No: dict ['key'] = list [index] Surround binary operators with a single space on either side for assignment (=), comparisons (==, <, >, ! Don't use spaces around the '=' sign when used to indicate a keyword argument or a default parameter value. Yes: def complex(real, imag=0.0): return magic(r=real, i=imag) No: def complex(real, imag = 0.0): return magic(r = real, i = imag) Don't use spaces to vertically align tokens on consecutive lines, since it becomes a maintenance burden (applies to :, #, =, etc

Jesse Noller Yup; it’s that time — every­one and their brother is doing a post look­ing back at 2011 and tak­ing stock of the good, the bad and the ugly. I’m no dif­fer­ent — 2011 was a year that largely rep­re­sented a mas­sive shift in my life’s tec­tonic plates. I’ve decided to break this reflec­tion into two related parts — the more per­sonal stuff (this one) and the big-P Python stuff — both have seen shifts and changes worth not­ing, and both are inex­tri­ca­bly tied for me. I’ve inten­tion­ally skipped all of the Python** stuff (includ­ing PyCon) that I’ve been work­ing on — that’s going to come next. Per­sonal Changes In late 2010 I was play­ing paint­ball — some­thing which every­one should try at least once — it truly is a blast. I did not real­ize that my knee has dis­lo­cated, just that my leg wasn’t work­ing. When I got home and changed, the truth came out. He told me I needed to change things. This is a photo of my from June 2010: Me, Decem­ber 2011: Now for the hard part. Chil­dren
