As Python continues to grow in popularity, projects are becoming larger and more complex. Many Python developers are taking an interest in high-level software design patterns such as hexagonal/clean architecture, event-driven architecture, and the strategic patterns prescribed by domain-driven design (DDD). But translating those patterns into Python isn't always straightforward.

With this hands-on guide, Harry Percival and Bob Gregory from MADE.com introduce proven architectural design patterns to help Python developers manage application complexity--and get the most value out of their test suites.

Each pattern is illustrated with concrete examples in beautiful, idiomatic Python, avoiding some of the verbosity of Java and C# syntax. Patterns include:

  • Dependency inversion and its links to ports and adapters (hexagonal/clean architecture)
  • Domain-driven design's distinction between Entities, Value Objects, and Aggregates
  • Repository and Unit of Work patterns for persistent storage
  • Events, commands, and the message bus
  • Command-query responsibility segregation (CQRS)
  • Event-driven architecture and reactive microservices
