Python Unlocked

by none

Category: Writing Skills

And yet another Python book. Being such a clean and flexible has brought this 20 years old programming language to be one of the hottest ones out there. Like it or not, most of the active repositories on GitHub are on Python. This is also confirmed by multiple sources listing the most demanded programming languages in the IT world. We Pythonists are lucky because, apart from a nice documentation, there is plenty of books to pick from, even though most of them cover basic features of the language. Python Unlocked does not belong to this large group of titles and focuses itself on internediate topics.Released at the end of 2015, Python Unlocked is a short book targeting that niche of Pythonists interested in intermediate to advanced topics, such as decorators, abstract classes and unit testing.Lets dive into the content!The very first things that comes to the eye of the reader is poor english writing skills. True, Packt Publishing does not offer authors any kind of proofreading service but someone should at least check if articles are present. The reader, sometimes after a second pass through the sentecne, can still grasp what the author wanted to say, but this definitely lowers the overall quality of the title.English apart, the choice of topics somehow got me raising an eyebrow in doubt: abstract classes are definitely a subject an itnermediate Python developer wants to know of, but the MRO is probably misplaced here. Unless you are going to work in the core of the language itself, and are smart enough to prefer mixins to multiple inheritance, you can definitely live without knowing about it.Unnecessary complexities are present everywhere. So are unclear explainations. For example, the book starts discussing the internals of an object. The author states When an attribute is searched in an object first, it is searched in its dictionary then its types (base classs) dictionary. Fine, but what is that __dict__ that I see everywhere? Either you introduce me to it, and explain me what it is or, if I am supposed to know what it represents already then the whole chapter is superfluous.Lets continue. Decorators are callable objects, which replace the original callable objects with some other objects. This is not correct. A decorator can replace the original callable with another one, but it must not. No words about decorators with a variable number of arguments, which is a very interesting aspect of decorators. Only later on, paged ahead, the author dedicates a couple of lines explaining functools.wrap.The examples are usually very short, Hello world! like pieces of code, whose functions are given names like f1, f2 and foo and whose body does little more than print(adf).Overall, a poor effort. The concepts are not properly explained and the examples are too short and focused on unnecessary complexities. Anyone interested in itnermediate to advanced Python topics should pick any of the following titles, instead:Fluent PythonEssential PythonAs usual, you can find more reviews on my personal blog: books.lostinmalloc.com.
