Exploring Python by Timothy A. Budd

By Timothy A. Budd

Exploring Python takes an energetic studying strategy which engages the coed as an equivalent accomplice within the means of studying the joys, academic, and robust programming language. This procedure instills conduct that scholars will hold with them all through their programming occupation and is helping them hold and use the data they've got learned.
Tim Budd is among the best-known authors in laptop technology and has a name for generating writing texts alongside the forefront of the self-discipline. Exploring Python offers an obtainable and trustworthy creation into programming with the Python language.

Pro Django

Django is the major Python net program improvement framework. easy methods to leverage the Django internet framework to its complete strength during this complex educational and reference. recommended by means of Django, seasoned Django roughly selections up the place The Definitive consultant to Django left off and examines in larger element the bizarre and complicated difficulties that Python internet program builders can face and the way to unravel them.

Python and HDF5

Gain hands-on adventure with HDF5 for storing clinical facts in Python. This useful consultant quick will get you in control at the information, most sensible practices, and pitfalls of utilizing HDF5 to archive and percentage numerical datasets ranging in measurement from gigabytes to terabytes.

via real-world examples and functional routines, you’ll discover subject matters reminiscent of clinical datasets, hierarchically prepared teams, user-defined metadata, and interoperable documents. Examples are acceptable for clients of either Python 2 and Python three. If you’re conversant in the fundamentals of Python information research, this can be an incredible creation to HDF5.
• Get manage with HDF5 instruments and create your first HDF5 dossier
• paintings with datasets by way of studying the HDF5 Dataset item
• comprehend complex gains like dataset chunking and compression
• how you can paintings with HDF5’s hierarchical constitution, utilizing teams
• Create self-describing documents via including metadata with HDF5 attributes
• make the most of HDF5’s kind procedure to create interoperable documents
• convey relationships between information with references, named kinds, and size scales
• detect how Python mechanisms for writing parallel code have interaction with HDF5

The Definitive Guide to Jython: Python for the Java Platform

Jython is an open resource implementation of the high-level, dynamic, object-oriented scripting language Python seamlessly built-in with the Java platform. The predecessor to Jython, JPython, is qualified as a hundred% natural Java. Jython is freely to be had for either advertisement and noncommercial use and is shipped with resource code.

A functional start to computing with Python

A useful begin to Computing with Python permits scholars to fast study computing with no need to take advantage of loops, variables, and item abstractions in the beginning. Requiring no earlier programming adventure, the booklet attracts on Python’s versatile info forms and operations in addition to its means for outlining new services.

Example text

New features include the keyword (def) and the parameter list—the list of names enclosed in parentheses following the function name. A new type of statement, the return statement, indicates the value that will be used as the value of the expression in the caller’s program after the function finishes execution. It is common (although not required) that a comment be placed inside the function to describe its purpose. You have already seen the syntax used to invoke a function. The name of the function to be executed is given, followed by a list of arguments, or values that will be matched to the names given in the parameter list.

The term code is often used to describe statements that have been organized into a program. In Chapter 1 you encountered three forms of statement: the assignment statement, the print statement, and the import statement. Two of these are used in the temperature conversion program. Here you will learn about several more forms of statements. Writing a Python program has many advantages over immediately executing a statement. First, it allows you to execute the same series of statements over and over.

When this happens, you can create new scenarios and again work with the client to see if these scenarios satisfy the original vision. Then translate your design into a working Python program. Remove all the syntactic errors in the program, until it appears to be working for a reasonable set of values. Step 5: Test and Debug the Program Once you think your program is working, test it in a systematic fashion. Begin with the test cases you created during your analysis of the program. If any of these produce the wrong results, it might be necessary to go back and change your design or your implementation.
