If you're an experienced Python programmer, Python in Practice will help you improve the quality, reliability, speed, maintainability, and usability of all your Python programs.
Mark Summerfield focuses on four key themes: design patterns
for coding elegance, faster processing through concurrency and compiled Python (Cython), high-level networking, and graphics. He identifies well-proven design patterns
that are useful in Python, illuminates them with expert-quality code, and explains why some object-oriented design patterns
are irrelevant to Python. He also explodes several counterproductive myths about Python programming—showing, for example, how Python can take full advantage of multicore hardware.
