Clean Code

I’m just reading the book Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship by Robert C. Martin (see the reviews here). The code examples are in Java but the tips are general and thus they can be applied to Python too. If you want to learn how to write nice code, how to do refactoring, read this book.
