Welcome to Python Packages!

Tomas Beuzen & Tiffany Timbers

Python packages are the fundamental unit of shareable code in Python. Packages make it easy to reuse and maintain your code, and are how you share your code with your colleagues and the wider Python community. Python Packages is an open source textbook that describes modern and efficient workflows for creating Python packages. It’s scope and intent is inspired by the R packages book written by Hadley Wickham and Jenny Bryan.
