Look inside

In this liveProject, you’ll refactor a legacy module with unpredictable functionality to make it fit for your needs. The module behaves strangely whenever you import it, and so your task is to find the problem by exploring the ways that import in Python works. Your new knowledge will allow you to fix the issues in the test module, and create safer modules and multi-module packages.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.
