If you want to learn about computer programming at warp speed then this is the book for you. This is a fun, hands-on text that uses free Python software to teach you programming.
This introductory text was written for students new to programming and those who want to start writing code fast. It is a hands-on book and uses Python as the primary vehicle to teach you how to program. With the hands-on sections you can stop and complete a knowledge building activity to reinforce what you have just learned. In this way you get to "learn and use" your new knowledge as you read instead of only at the end of each chapter.
Python is not just a teaching and learning language, but a professional, powerful, and modern language that is used around the world everyday on many computer platforms. Learning Python is not an academic chore that you will never use again but a technology skill that will serve you well over and over. Indeed the design skills alone are worth your effort. Suffice to say if you never write another line of code again after reading this book, the information will serve you well in all your future computing endeavors!
