Nice tutorials I bumped into recently

Hi guys! I am in the USA right now. I am here to attend a Hackathon at the University of Michigan called MHacks 6. This is my first ever Hackathon so I am very excited. So now without wasting any time let’s get down to business. I recently came across a lot of nice tutorials which I believe might be useful for you guys. I am listing them below in no particular order:

  1. Diagnosing Memory ‘Leaks’ in Python

This is an old article (2013) but still contains some gems in it. I learned about the resources module while going through this tutorial. It is more or less a ‘checklist’ of how to diagnose the memory leaks.

  1. Creating beautiful REST APIs with Flask

This is a really nice presentation on how to create beautiful REST APIs with Flask. It shows you the types of decorators you might need and when you should opt for a decorator. It also shows you how to avoid some basic mistakes which one encounters while developing APIs.

  1. Why Python over PHP

I think that I might be the only one who likes argumentative and opinionated discussions once in a while. Well, if you are somewhat like me then you would enjoy reading this discussion. It tells you why and why not you should opt for Python in place of PHP.

  1. 10 Reasons to Love SQL Alchemy

This is again a very nice post. It lists the major + points of SQL Alchemy and lists the reasons for why one would and should love SQL Alchemy.

  1. Comparing Python Command-Line Parsing Libraries – Argparse, Docopt, and Click

In this post the author shares the similarities and differences between some famous command-line parsing libraries. If you are into command-line programming then make sure to check it out.

That’s it for now. I will update this post when I get some free time. I hope that you guys find this post useful. It’s goodbye time for now 🙂

P.S If you somehow happen to attend MHacks then do send me an email or a message on Facebook. I would LOVE meet you!
