4 Books to Help You Become a Seasoned Python Programmer

I know, I know. The internet has been around for many years, so why on earth are there people who still want to read books? There are tons of free resources online. Who is “stupid” enough to pay $30-40 or even more to buy a book on programming?

I’m one of the “stupid” people who have bought many books on Python to improve my coding skills, and they have benefited my work as a scientist whose job has lots of coding requirements.

In this article, I’d like to share four Python books that I find to be more useful than others.

Disclaimer: I’m providing Amazon links to these books for your convenience. They’re not affiliate links and I have no conflicts of interest to declare. The discussion of these books is solely based on my personal learning experience.

1. Python Crash Course by Eric Matthes

This book is a great primer for you if you have little or no programming background. In other words, if Python is the first programming language that you’re learning, it’s the book that you can get started with.

The first part of this book covers the basic elements of Python:

  • Coding tools — Installation and a test drive of writing a “Hello, World!” Python script.
  • Data structures — Overview of data types. A focus on lists, dictionaries, and their related usages.
  • Logic flows — Discussion of the if statements and for and while loops.
  • Functions and classes — Basic elements of Python functions and classes.
  • Files and exceptions — How to deal with files and handle exceptions during coding and execution time.

Python Tricks Every Developer Should Know

Python is awesome, it’s one of the easiest languages with simple and intuitive syntax but wait, have you ever thought that there might ways to write your python code simpler?

In this tutorial, you’re going to learn a variety of Python tricks that you can use to write your Python code in a more readable and efficient way like a pro.

Let’s get started

Swapping value in Python

Instead of creating a temporary variable to hold the value of the one while swapping, you can do this instead

>>> FirstName = "kalebu"
>>> LastName = "Jordan"
>>> FirstName, LastName = LastName, FirstName

('Jordan', 'kalebu')

How to Remove all Duplicate Files on your Drive via Python

Today you’re going to learn how to use Python programming in a way that can ultimately save a lot of space on your drive by removing all the duplicates.

Intro

In many situations you may find yourself having duplicates files on your disk and but when it comes to tracking and checking them manually it can tedious.

Heres a solution

Instead of tracking throughout your disk to see if there is a duplicate, you can automate the process using coding, by writing a program to recursively track through the disk and remove all the found duplicates and that’s what this article is about.

But How do we do it?

If we were to read the whole file and then compare it to the rest of the files recursively through the given directory it will take a very long time, then how do we do it?

The answer is hashing, with hashing can generate a given string of letters and numbers which act as the identity of a given file and if we find any other file with the same identity we gonna delete it.

There’s a variety of hashing algorithms out there such as

  • md5
  • sha1
  • sha224, sha256, sha384 and sha512
