"Pydon'ts" are short, to-the-point, meaningful Python programming tips. A Pydon't is something you should not do when programming in Python. In general, following a Pydon't will make you write more Pythonic code.
I am excited to tell you that I just released the alpha version of my “Pydont's” book, a book that compiles all my “Pydon't” articles. You can get the book at leanpub: leanpub.com/pydonts.
The aim of this "Pydon't" series is to provide a series of programming tips for Python programmers that will take their Python programming to the next level. This goal will be achieved by showing "bad" Python code and then comparing it to the better, more Pythonic alternative.
Pydon'ts are more useful for Python programmers that are looking to improve their Python skills or for programmers that have experience in other programming languages and are looking to expand their arsenal by learning Python. These people are the ones that might get more bang for their buck by reading these Pydon'ts.
Beginners will also benefit from reading these, obviously, but some of these tips might be about topics you haven't learned yet as a beginner -- making it the perfect opportunity to do learn said topic!
If you fit into one of these categories, be sure to subscribe to the Pydon't newsletter so you get the Pydon'ts directly to your inbox.
At the time of writing, there's 28 Pydon'ts scheduled that can't wait to reach your inbox. I'll send you one Pydon't per week, every Tuesday, starting on the 5th of January of 2021, so you can kick off the new year learning something new and improving yourself!
Throughout this weekly series of Pydon'ts, I'll (almost) always follow the same structure:
The complementary blog post will itself contain the following:
