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
– Work with relational databases and effectively manage and stream data with PostgreSQL
