Synopsis:

Python Crash Course is a fast-paced, thorough introduction to programming with Python that will have you writing programs, solving problems, and making things that work in no time.

In the first half of the book, you'll learn about basic programming concepts, such as lists, dictionaries, classes, and loops, and practice writing clean and readable code with exercises for each topic. You'll also learn how to make your programs interactive and how to test your code safely before adding it to a project. In the second half of the book, you'll put your new knowledge into practice with three substantial projects: a Space Invaders-inspired arcade game, data visualizations with Python's super-handy libraries, and a simple web app you can deploy online.

As you work through Python Crash Course, you'll learn how to:

  • Use powerful Python libraries and tools, including matplotlib, NumPy, and Pygal
  • Make 2D games that respond to keypresses and mouse clicks, and that grow more difficult as the game progresses
  • Work with data to generate interactive visualizations
  • Create and customize simple web apps and deploy them safely online
  • Deal with mistakes and errors so you can solve your own programming problems


If you've been thinking seriously about digging into programming, Python Crash Course will get you up to speed and have you writing real programs fast. Why wait any longer? Start your engines and code!

Product Description:

Python is the most popular programming language for beginners because it's fun, powerful, and easy to learn. So why should your introductory Python book be long and tedious?

Python Crash Course gets you up and running with Python, teaching you the basics quickly so that you can solve problems, make things, and do cool stuff. Each chapter explains a new programming concept and includes a set of exercises to help reinforce your new knowledge.

But most important of all, Python Crash Course includes three hands-on projects to put your new programming skills into practice, so it's not just syntax and theory. You'll learn how to create a simple video game, use data visualization techniques to make interactive graphs and charts, and build a simple Web application. Python Crash Course teaches you Python the fun way?it's quick, hands-on, and totally useful.
