Practices of the Python Pro is on Product Hunt

A while ago I shared about the book I was writing on software development in Python, and received such a great outpouring of support from the DEV community! Thank you all 💖

Today, with the book nearing the finish line in production and with all content available in the early access version, I launched the book on Product Hunt! If you have the time and interest to join the discussion, leave a review (if you've read the book), or share the link around, please do! It would mean the world to me.

My availability to write online or do things for fun has been a bit stagnant for some time, but I hope that I'll be able to start getting back to it soon with a few things coming to a close. I look forward to seeing you all again in no time!

Hey Dane, this looks pretty good! I've been dipping my toes in Python lately and have a JavaScript background. How would you say this compares to something like Fluent Python? I haven't gone through a lot of that book yet but it's commonly promoted as a resource for intermediate Python programmers write more idiomatic Python.

Great question! Whereas Fluent Python is specifically geared toward idiomatic Python, this book's focus is a bit broader, containing information on software design and architecture you could fairly readily translate to other languages. So, they feel like they cover different spaces for the most part! I cover a bit of idiomatic code as a way to produce a consistent experience reading and writing code, but not enough that I'd say you should read my book instead of Fluent Python by any means 😄

Thanks for your input on this, I appreciate it. After looking at the contents and realizing some of that design/architecture stuff on there, I purchased the bundle and am looking forward to diving into it. Any ideas when the physical copy will be shipping out? 😄

Thanks so much! Please let me know how you like it! The book should be going to print by December, and after that it's a bit up to the printer but probably a couple of months. You should get a finalized EPUB file at the time the book gets sent to the printer, so at least it will be nicely formatted and the like!
