A recent twitter poll went around the web and it asked, what percentage of the Python standard library do you think you know? Someone copied me on it, maybe expecting some really high percentage answer. In reality, what I did answer and my rough estimate is that it's probably around 50%.

This episode with Alessandro Molina definitely helped confirm that experience for me. He just published a book entitled "Modern Python Standard Library Cookbook" and it's full of these great little corners of the standard library that you might not have bumped into but you'll be super glad to hear about on this episode!
