From Novice to ProfessionaleBook - 2005
Beginning Python: From Novice to Professional is the most comprehensive book on the Python ever written. Based on Practical Python , this newly-revised book is both an introduction and practical reference for a swath of Python-related programming topics, including addressing language internals, database integration, network programming, and web services. Advanced topics, such as extending Python and packaging/distributing Python applications, are also covered.
Ten different projects illustrate the concepts introduced in the book. You will learn how to create a P2P file-sharing application and a web-based bulletin board, and how to remotely edit web-based documents and create games. Author Magnus Lie Hetland is an authority on Python and previously authored Practical Python . He also authored the popular online guide, Instant Python Hacking, on which both books are based.
