Ok guys, this 2020 is finally ending!
It has been a tough year for everyone because of all these COVID restrictions but I want to believe that 2021 will be a far better year.
For this last month of the year, I’ve selected five articles that I hope you will enjoy. I strongly recommend the last one I’ve linked by Nikita Leshenko … what a tutorial guys! You can’t miss it!
Before the monthly links, let me thanks all the people that have read my articles, shared them with other devs, and supported me, my site, and my work by donating a couple of bucks. You’ve been great guys and I want you to know that I’ve really appreciated that.
Ok then, I wish all of you an incredibly great Christmas time with your family and friends and I hope you will enjoy this month’s selection.
Happy new year! D.
Formatting strings in Python: the easy way by using f-strings Author: Davide Mastromatteo Audience Level: Beginners / Intermediate
My last article on The Python Corner is about fstrings, a Python feature that exists since Python 3.5 but that I’ve found out no every Python developer knows. Don’t expect a >5000 words article though… :)
Yes, it’s true, this is not April 1st. Our former BDFL wasn’t happy to stay retired and decided to join… the dark side! :) However… Good luck Guido! Even if I know you won’t need it!
Syntax highlighting is a waste of an information channel Author: Hillel Wayne Audience Level: All levels
A very good article to think about something we use every day: syntax highlighting… But couldn’t it be even more useful? Hillel gives us some hints on this topic in his great newsletter.
I’ve found this project on Github and I think it could be very interesting for all the people that use VSCode (that one of my favorites Python IDE).
Quoting the author (that’s also a Google engineer):
Never spend hours stepping through a program, let Cyberbrain tell you what happened.
This is by far one of the best articles of 2020. It’s not just an article, it’s a full git internals tutorial for Python developers because it teaches you git internals while building a real git-like VCS in Python.
