Python 101 (part 6): Hedgehogs, Pythons And Funky Chameleons
Find out how to abstract out parts of your Python code into reusable functions.

| A Little Knowledge |

If you've been paying attention these last few weeks, you should now know enough about Python to begin writing your own programs in the language. As a matter of fact, you might even be entertaining thoughts of cutting down your weekly visits to this Web site and doing away with this tutorial altogether.

Well, a very wise man once said that a little knowledge was a dangerous thing...and so, as your Python scripts become more and more complex, you're going to bump your head against the principles of software design, and begin looking for a more efficient way of structuring your Python programs.

Over the course of the next few articles, I'm going to take a look at the Python framework for basic software abstractions like functions and classes. Specifically, this tutorial will show you how to build your own functions, thereby adding an element of reusability to your code; you'll learn the difference between arguments and return values, find out how to handle function objects, and even visit some of the more important built-in methods.

Let's get cracking!

How to do Everything with PHP & MySQL
How to do Everything with PHP & MySQL, the best-selling book by Melonfire, explains how to take full advantage of PHP's built-in support for MySQL and link the results of database queries to Web pages. You'll get full details on PHP programming and MySQL database development, and then you'll learn to use these two cutting-edge technologies together. Easy-to-follow sample applications include a PHP online shopping cart, a MySQL order tracking system, and a PHP/MySQL news publishing system.
