Python in easy steps

by: Mike McGrath (0)

Python in easy steps, 2nd edition instructs you how to program in the powerful Python language, giving complete examples that illustrate each aspect with colourized source code.

Python in easy steps, 2nd edition begins by explaining how to install the free Python interpreter so you can quickly begin to create your own executable programs by copying the book's examples. It demonstrates all the Python language basics before moving on to provide examples of Object Oriented Programming (OOP) and CGI scripting to handle web form data. The book concludes by demonstrating how you can use your acquired knowledge to create and deploy graphical windowed applications.

Python in easy steps, 2nd edition makes no assumption you have previous knowledge of any programming language so it's ideal for the newcomer to computer programming. It has an easy-to-follow style that will appeal to programmers moving from another programming language, and to the student who is studying Python programming at school or college, and to those seeking a career in computing who need a fundamental understanding of computer programming.

The Python 3.x language is under active development so frequent new releases are made available as small improvements are added to the language and Python in easy steps, 2nd edition features the very latest versions of Python at the time of publication. Python development is one of evolution, rather than revolution, so the examples provided in the book can be used in subsequent releases – simply download the latest version of Python then follow the easy steps.

The Reviews

I purchased several Python programming books, including the popular Head First book. However, for quick learning, this one is the best. There's compact explanations and simple examples of a topic and then they move on. On the other hand, the Head First Python book goes into great detail, discusses every nuance, and presents long examples for every topic. They both are very good but, for me, I would suggest starting with this book and getting a good overview of everything. Then, go to another book if you want more details.

This is a great book to learn Python. It takes a complex subject and makes it easy and fun. I wish I bought this book 20 years ago.

greati have learned python for engineering applications

I really enjoyed this basic intro to Python, the illustrations and examples were super helpful to understand the basics.

This is a short text on Python for beginners. Very readable and well written. Not for pros, but a very good brief text if you are just starting out with Python.

Good. Updated links from previous book with easier to understand revised text. Seth Kolodny

Decent book on beginner python. But other books offer a tadbit more.

Great book if you are learning the basics.
