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!
