Publisher's Summary

Do you want to take your Python to the next level? Python is easy to learn. You can learn the basics in a day and be productive with it, but there are more-advanced constructs that you will eventually run across if you spend enough time with it. Don't be confused by these constructs; learn them, embrace them, and improve your code and the code of others.
This audiobook combines three popular guides into one. You will hear:


Guide to: Functional Python & Comprehension Constructs
Guide to: Learning Iteration & Generators in Python
Guide to: Learning Python Decorators
Write Python code like the masters. These constructs, while not necessary per se, allow you to be more succinct, to reuse code, and to think about code in a different way. You will learn:


How the constructs work
When to use them
Real-life examples from the standard library
Functional programming
List comprehensions
Generator expressions
Set & dict comprehensions
Iteration
Generators
Closures
Decorators
I have taught material similar to these constructs at conferences such as PyCon, OSCON, and Strata. This audiobook is based on my experience teaching and using Python for many years. I hope you learn something over the course of your listening. Maybe it will help you with your next task, code review, or job interview.

Could have been much better

The narrator simply reads code examples nearly verbatim, which is very difficult to follow. I think audio format would work if code examples were described in terms of general flow and intent, as in a normal conversation. Otherwise it's not a good fit for audio.
