Enforcing The Single Responsibility Principle (SRP) in Python
The Single Responsibility Principle (or SRP) is an important concept in software development. The main idea of this concept is: all pieces of software must have only a single responsibility. Nikita’s article guides you through the complex process of writing simple code with some hands-on refactoring examples. You’ll use callable classes, SRP, dependency injection, and composition to write simple Python code. Nice read!

Python Packages Growth Since 2005
“The Python ecosystem has been steadily growing [since 2005]. After the first few years of hyper growth as PyPI gained near-full adoption in the Python community, the number of packages actively developed each year—meaning they had at least one release or new distribution uploaded—has increased 28% to 48% every year.”

Why You Want Formal Dependency Injection in Python Too
“In other languages, e.g., Java, explicit dependency injection is part of daily business. Python projects however very rarely make use of this technique. I’d like to make a case for why it might be useful to rethink this approach.”
