[Deal]DIC discount at setattr.com

Post icon  Posted 19 February 2015 - 10:16 PM

I'm happy to announce that, Brian Hicks at setattr.com is offering DIC members a 20% discount on his first season of python lessons and exercises. setattr.com is series of video-based lessons aimed at the post-beginner python user: if you understand the way the language works and you want to get into the tools and how to use them, you should take a look at his trial lesson (free at setattr.com) and see if it's for you. If you like the trial, consider ordering the season - it looks like there's a lot to learn there, particularly for those of you who are interested in working professionally in python or want to write code for other people to use.

The lessons in the first season cover
  • cookiecutter: a way to reduce writing tedious boilerplate code when you start new projects
  • sphinx: a powerful and customizable documentation generator
  • setuptools: share your code with the world, so you can pip install yourcoolthing
  • flake8: clean up your code to make it easier to communicate with other programmers
  • ipython: a much nicer shell than the default, plus notebook superpowers


This deal is good for two weeks, until March 6. Use this link to get to the trial lesson, and this link to get 20% off the first season of lessons. (regular price $19)
