3. Productionizing

In this chapter, we'll explore key strategies for improving your Python codebase, making it more maintainable, scalable, and efficient. We'll also cover the pivotal transition from working in notebooks to structuring your code as a Python package, a crucial step for enhancing code quality and collaboration. From organizing your project into packages and modules, understanding programming paradigms, and setting up entry points, to managing configurations, documenting your work, and optimizing your development environment with VS Code, you'll learn practical tips to refine your Python projects. Let's dive into refining your Python skills and elevating your projects.

  • 3.0. Package: Learn how to organize and structure your Python codebase effectively for better modularity and maintainability.
  • 3.1. Modules: Dive into the organization of Python files into modules for cleaner, more scalable code.
  • 3.2. Paradigms: Explore various programming paradigms (OOP, functional programming) and their applications in putting Python in production.
  • 3.3. Entrypoints: Understand the significance of entry points in managing the execution flow of your Python applications.
  • 3.4. Configurations: Master the art of externalizing configurations to make your Python projects more flexible and environment-agnostic.
