Short Bytes: Programming can be a lot of fun, but sometimes you’re stuck reading through dry documentation which can get boring. PyMotW is a great site for cutting through the dry thick documentation and getting at the material. Let’s tell you more about that.
Resources like PyMotW are very valuable because it’s rare that so much information is in a single location and structured in such a way that’s conducive to those that learn without the benefit of a teacher or mentor.
The site offers breakdowns of the Python Standard Library modules, including, but not limited to:
- Text Manipulation
- Data Structures
- Concurrency and Multithreading
And many, many more.
The book is over 1300 pages, which should give you an idea how extensive this resource is. Beyond the reference, there are many tutorials giving examples of the module abilities and detailing some of the real world applications and limitations. This is an invaluable series for anyone learning Python or in need of a solid reference.
