Test-Driven Development with Python

“By taking you through the development of a real web application from beginning to end, this hands-on guide demonstrates the practical advantages of test-driven development (TDD) with Python. You’ll learn how to write and run tests before building each part of your app, and then develop the minimum amount of code required to pass those tests. The result? Clean code that works.”


“Cython can yield massive performance improvements over pure Python—speedups of 3000X are easily attainable for certain patterns. With this book, Kurt Smith shows you how to use Cython to easily wrap C and C++ libraries in Python, handling all the details of memory management for you. By removing the barrier between Python and C, Cython harnesses the best of both languages while remaining familiar and comfortable to Python users.”

Fluent Python

“Learn how to write idiomatic, effective Python code by leveraging its best features. Python's simplicity quickly lets you become productive with it, but this often means you aren’t using everything the language has to offer. By taking you through Python’s key language features and libraries, this practical book shows you how to make your code shorter, faster, and more readable all at the same time—what experts consider Pythonic.”
