Foundations of Python Network Programming

Rate this book
To guide readers through the new scripting language, Python, this book discusses every aspect of client and server programming. And as Python begins to replace Perl as a favorite programming language, this book will benefit scripters and serious application developers who want a feature-rich, yet simple language, for deploying their products.

The text explains multitasking network servers using several models, including forking, threading, and non-blocking sockets. Furthermore, the extensive examples demonstrate important concepts and practices, and provide a cadre of fully-functioning stand alone programs. Readers may even use the provided examples as building blocks to create their own software.

This is definitely the worst Python book which I've read. It is very very basic and messy. The examples are non practical. Just a waste of time.

This was a solid book. It's very much a "foundations" book in that's it's more for beginners to using Python for network applications. Also, it focuses on building network servers and clients using the standard library more than the more commonly used popular third-party libs, though certain libs are mentioned in sidebars. Generally, it's a nice introduction and overview, and useful for refreshing one's mind about network protocols, sockets, multitasking, etc. in Python.
