You’ll learn how to package your software for distribution, optimize performance, use the right data structures, define functions efficiently, pick the right libraries, build future-proof programs, and optimize your programs down to the bytecode. You’ll also learn how to:

– Make and use effective decorators and methods, including abstract, static, and class methods
– Employ Python for functional programming using generators, pure functions, and functional functions
– Extend flake8 to work with the abstract syntax tree (AST) to introduce more sophisticated automatic checks into your programs
– Apply dynamic performance analysis to identify bottlenecks in your code
