Python for programmers?by Rob Galanakis on 13/10/2012
But in a fully dynamic language that has so much power- not understand how the language itself works puts you at a severe disadvantage. I’m not just talking about the one thousand aspects of meta-programming, but even just taking advantage of duck-typing (ie, instead of creating/passing a type, can you just pass a callable that returns a new instance?). Or how decorators work, or how importing works.
I am pretty sure I asked this when I started python but, are there any books (or courses) about python, written for more-or-less experienced programmers (even python programmers), that aren’t about ‘teaching python’ in the normal introductory (or cookbook/reference) way? More along the lines of CLR via C#, or some of the better python guides out there (Idiomatic Python). I am sure there are a large number of people out there who would get huge benefit from such a book or comprehensive firstname.lastname@example.org
