Ce livre est la transition parfaite entre la saga Harry Potter et la trilogie des Magiciens. [...] En plus de tout ça, on trouve, en vrac : des références culturelles géniales, l'utilisation de la technologie par les sorciers, une guerre inter-espèces, la lutte contre le sexisme, des super-héros discrets, quelques insultes bien envoyées [...] un roman one-shot à lire absolument pour tous ceux qui aiment la magie, les histoires de grands ados (les héros sont majeurs) et, ok, les histoires d'amour un peu.
Already the industry standard for Python users, Programming

Whether you're a novice or an advanced
practitioner, you'll find this
refreshed book more than lives up to its reputation. Programming
Python, 3rd Edition, teaches you the right
way to code. It explains Python language syntax and programming
techniques in a clear and concise

common idioms. By reading this
comprehensive guide, you'll learn how to apply Python in real-world
problem domains such as:
- GUI programming
- Internet scripting
- Parallel processing
- Database management
- Networked applications
Programming Python, Third Edition covers
each of these
gradually, beginning with in-depth discussions of core concepts and
then progressing toward complete
programs. Large examples do appear, but only after you've learned
enough to understand their techniques and
Along the way, you'll also learn how to use the Python language in
realistically scaled programs--concepts such as Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) and code reuse
are recurring side themes throughout this
text. If you're interested in Python programming, then this O'Reilly
classic needs to be within arm's reach. The
wealth of practical advice, snippets of code, and patterns of program
design can all be put into use on a

Reviews of the second edition:
"...about as comprehensive as any book can be."
--Dr. Dobb's Journal
"If the language had manuals, they would undoubtedly
be the texts from O'Reilly...'Learning Python' and 'Programming Python'
are definitive treatments."
