Book Description

About the Author

Ninad Sathaye has spent several years of his professional career designing and developing performance-critical engineering applications written in a variety of languages; including Python and C++. He has worked as a software architect in the semiconductor industry; and more recently in the domain of Internet of Things. He holds a master’s degree in mechanical engineering.

eBook Description

Python is one of the most widely used dynamic programming languages; supported by a rich set of libraries and frameworks that enable rapid development. But fast-paced development often comes with its own baggage that could bring down the performance; quality; and extensibility of an application. This ebook will show you ways to handle such problems and write better Python applications.

In Learning Python Application Development (PDF); from the basics of simple command-line applications; develop your skills all the way to designing efficient and advanced Python apps. Guided by a light-hearted fantasy learning theme; overcome the real-world problems of complex Python development with practical solutions. Beginning with a focus on robustness; packaging; and releasing application code; you’ll move on to focus on improving application lifetime by making code extensible; readable and reusable. Get to grips with Python refactoring; design patterns; and best practices. Techniques to identify the bottlenecks and improve performance are covered in a series of chapters devoted to performance; before closing with a look at developing Python GUIs.

What you will learn

  • Develop simple GUI applications using Python.
  • Build a robust application by handling exceptions.
  • Document the code and implement coding standards.
  • Modularize; package; and release the source distribution.
  • Detect recurring problems in the code and apply design patterns.
  • Identify and re-factor badly written code to improve application life.
  • Create automated tests to catch bugs in the early development stage.
  • Improve code efficiency by identifying performance bottlenecks and fixing them.

Key Features

  • Develop; package; and deploy efficient applications in a fun way.
  • Get to grips with Python techniques that address commonly encountered problems in general application development.
  • All-practical coverage of the major areas of application development; including best practices; testing; exception handling; design patterns; refactoring; performance; and GUI application development.
