Building the PYTHONIC (Python-based) information system

Building a PYTHONIC (Python-based) information system combines the principles of information architecture, software writing, and best practices in software development within the Python ecosystem.

MVC: Model View Controller

Model: business modelled in the database in data and BPEL business rules
VIEW: “Edge computing” web page interface between user and compute
Controller: Python Classes and Objects which deliver the Business Rules and Algorithms

Here’s a high-level plan for creating a PYTHONIC information system:
1. **Requirements Gathering**: - Understand the specific needs of the information system, including the type of data to be managed, user interactions, and system functionality.
2. **Information Architecture**: - Define the structure of the information system, including data categorization, labeling, and organization. Use Python data structures such as dictionaries, lists, and sets to represent and organize different types of data effectively.
3. **Software Design and Modeling**: - Use classes and objects to model entities within the information system. Consider the business domain and design appropriate classes to represent real-world entities.
4. **Database Integration**: - If the information system requires a database, integrate Python’s database libraries (e.g., SQLAlchemy, Psycopg) for data storage and retrieval. Map the classes to database tables using ORMs (Object-Relational Mappers) for seamless interaction between the information system and the database.
5. **User Interface and Interactivity**: - Design and implement the user interface using Python frameworks such as Tkinter, PyQt, or web frameworks like Django or Flask for web-based systems.
6. **Information Retrieval and Processing**: - Implement algorithms and methods for efficient data retrieval and processing. Leverage Python’s built-in data processing libraries such as Pandas, NumPy, and others as needed.
7. **Documentation and Best Practices**: - Emphasize clean, well-documented code following Python’s PEP 8 style guide. Implement best practices such as error handling, logging, and testing to ensure the robustness of the information system.
8. **Security Considerations**: - Implement security measures according to best practices for handling sensitive data and protecting the system against potential vulnerabilities.
9. **Integration with External Systems**: - If needed, integrate the information system with external systems and APIs using Python’s libraries and tools for seamless data exchange.
10. **Scalability and Performance**: - Consider factors for scalability and performance optimization, selecting appropriate Python libraries and techniques to handle large-scale data processing and system performance.
11. **Training and Maintenance**: - Provide training and documentation for system users and maintain the system, incorporating updates and enhancements as needed.

By following these steps, you can build a PYTHONIC information system that aligns with best practices in information architecture, software development, and Python programming.
