Overview


This essential In Easy Steps guide instructs you how to program in the powerful Python language, giving complete examples that illustrate each aspect with colourized source code. In the step-by-step trusted formula, you'll be a Python guru in no time!
Python in easy steps 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. This book concludes by demonstrating how you can use your acquired knowledge to create and deploy graphical windowed applications.

Python in easy steps 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, 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.

Python is the language used to program the Raspberry Pi - covered by Raspberry Pi in easy steps.

This is a great introductory book for Python scripting. Each concept has about two pages with a command\function reference, explanation of what’s going on, and an example script. All the scripts were quickly reproducible and worked (which is a first for any programming book I’ve used up till now). I’ve had previous programming experience, but not recently, and I think those in the same boat will like this text because it works as a reference as well as a trainer. One can quickly go to a section look up how a command is being use and see the correct syntax, and move on, unlike some texts that bury the syntax in pages of minutia. Finally, I liked the associated applications that McGrath included in the book; they’re free and very useful. PyScripter was great for the creation and running of the scripts without having to go in and out of files with every example. Cx-freeze will help me take my own Python scripts and make them into deployable applications at work. So, if you’re interested in learning Python scripting and want a place to start, this book is good, inexpensive start.
