After a quick review of Python, the book covers: advanced list and string techniques; all the ways to handle text and binary files; financial applications; advanced techniques for writing classes; generators and decorators; and how to master packages such as Numpy (Numeric Python) to supercharge your applications!
Use profilers and “magic methods” to code like a pro
Harness the power of regular expressions to process text quickly with a single statement
Take advantage of 22 coding shortcuts, along with performance tips, to save time and optimize your code
Create really useful classes and objects, for games, simulations, money, mathematics, and more
Use multiple modules to build powerful apps while avoiding the “gotchas”
Import packages to dramatically speed up statistical operations—by as much as 100 times!
Refer to the five-part language reference to look up fine points of the language
Supercharged Python demonstrates techniques that allow you to write faster and more powerful code, whether you’re manipulating large amounts of data or building sophisticated applications.
