Welcome to the PyBites weekly digest - all of the posts from the past week delivered straight to your inbox.
Thanks to everyone who participated in Code Challenge 02. It was quite complex and both of us learned a lot. We're absolutely stoked to see the participation and to be able to learn from you all. To be shown alternative and more Pythonic solutions to the challenges is an amazing feeling!
Challenge 03 is now up so please jump in and give it a go!
Our new code challenge is up: PyBites blog tag analysis. This week you will parse our RSS feed looking for the most common tags and the ones we possibly should merge based on similarity ratio. Enjoy!
On Saturdays we will share a curated list of 15 cool things (mostly Python) we found / tweeted during the week.
It's Friday again so we review the code challenge of this week. It's never late to sign up, just fork our challenges repo and start coding.
Iteration in Python is incredibly simple compared to C and other languages. It's easy... maybe a little TOO easy...
In this article some important anti-patterns regarding error handling and how to solve them making your code more Pythonic and easier to maintain.
A great list of Python Resources that should keep you busy for a while!
Thanks for joining us! We're definitely learning a lot from this and we hope you are too.
Keep Calm and Code in Python.
