Python is one of the hottest programming languages in the world right now. According to StackOverflow’s Developer Survey 2021, Python is the third most popular programming language. It is primarily due to its easy-going syntax coupled with powerful dynamic typing and binding. In this article, we will focus on building efficient and scalable applications in Python using popular design patterns. Design patterns are standards or conventions used to solve commonly occurring problems.

Memory leaks are one of developers’ worst nightmares. They can easily take down a healthy running application within hours if not minutes. It can be difficult to detect some of such leaks since they slowly grow and take over your app’s available memory. On top of it, each programming language manages memory in its own unique ways and hence can leak memory in different ways. Hence proactive measures to identify and prevent such leaks from happening is crucial.

Flask is the most popular micro-framework for web programming in Python. Known for its lightweight build and flexibility, it is a fan favorite amongst beginners because of how easy it is to get started with, especially for building prototypes and small-scale projects. Even though Flask is one of the faster frameworks out there, there’s almost always scope for improving performance in web applications. Things might run fine when you serve minimal, static websites with ample compute resources.

The cloud is growing more and more popular each day. We are in an era where there is a prominent trend of companies migrating from traditional on-premise systems to more reliable and fast cloud-based systems. However, the conversion is still not rampant on a large scale, primarily due to the lack of awareness in the up-and-coming businesses about the cloud’s fundamentals. However, the cloud has proven to be a sound and worthy option time and time again.

Flask and Django are two of the most popular Python packages. More importantly, they are the two most preferred web frameworks you can use with the language. Both frameworks are open-source and offer excellent APIs for developers to build robust Python web applications. While both frameworks serve the same purpose, they take two philosophically opposed routes to achieve it.

The concept of microservices has been popular for several years. As a result, many developers, companies have started building their applications using a microservices architecture. There are several reasons why a company or developer would want to move to microservices, including building a scalable application, maintaining the developer’s productivity without relying on each other, etc. Your teams start to build microservices by containerizing applications etc.

Traditionally, monolithic architecture has been used to develop large-scale apps. However, people have realized its drawbacks and limitations over time. Without adapting to modern agile practices and limited flexibility does not allow for a productive development process. Therefore, organizations have been searching for better, more reliable architecture to facilitate the development of large-scale, complex apps with a more productive workflow.

In most modern programming, there are objects that get involved with every aspect of an application. They are on a very high level in the hierarchy and need to interact with almost all other objects directly to ensure the proper functioning of the app. More often than not, these are objects involved in the overlaps of business logic: a User, Booking, or Account.
