More specifically, I'm looking for Object Oriented designs that will help me cement my knowledge and expose me to best practices that books never cover. I have half a mind to start reading up the Django or Pandas source code, but I don't want to overwhelm myself.

Hi Ankush

Can I refer you to a book, which isn't about object oriented design its actually about functional design, please wait though its one of the best books I am reading haven't made it to the end yet :-)

The author has written several books and about python object oriented design, but in writing about functional python it forces him to talk about when functional is good or bad and which parts of the language respond best to which approach, plus its clearly and straightforwardly written.

Its functional python programming by Steven Lott.
