Learn Python with Talk Python's Python courses

Fluent Python

Episode #24, published Tue, Sep 8, 2015, recorded Thu, Aug 6, 2015.

This episode is carbon neutral.
Are you fluent in Python or do you speak the language with an accent? Maybe you have a hint of C++ in your for-in loop or even a little C# coming through in your function names. Python's ease of learning can also lead to non-pythonic patterns for even experienced developers. It's so easy to jump in and (superficially) learn the language that you might miss the deeper understanding and Pythonic thinking.

Luciano Ramalho is here to help us clear up that accent that has been giving us away to our peers and he is giving everyone a deeper understanding of this language we love with his just released book "Fluent Python".
