"The goal here is not just to be able to hack together a few Python lines into a utility. It's to be able to use the Python modules and solid development practices to build entire applications that can accomplish their stated purpose as well as be maintainable...If you're a newbie to Python, you're probably not quite ready for this one yet.

-- Thomas Duff, Duffbert's Random Musings

"...offers a virtual manual in book form which can quickly be consulted by novices and pros alike while in the middle of a programming quandry.

Here are chapters offering everything from troubleshooting to design specs, with an eye to realistically scaled problems and avoiding common hurdles..."
