Event/Course Description

Topics covered

Quality of software matters, whether you share it with others or not. Software should be easy to install, easy to use, and well documented. This training will cover those aspects from the perspective of the Python.ecosystem.  However, it is also important that software is easy to maintain, so  coding style matters, API-level documentation should be available, as well as a battery of tests to ensure the software's integrity.  Of course, good  design is at least as important.

Subjects and Python modules that will be covered:

  • user interface: argparse, configparser
  • documentation: docstring, mkdocs
  • code style and best practices, idiomatic Python: flake8, pylint
  • unit testing: pytest
  • object oriented programming in Python
  • design patterns
