Product Description

Product Description

Are you fed up with reading long, boring, lengthy paragraphs after paragraphs of text and want to get up and running in Python as soon as possible?
Well, you're not alone. I for one hate having to read through masses of text for very little benefit. Python In A Day strips away the non essentials and instead provides you with the fundamentals from which you can blossom as a Python programmer.

So, what can I expect from the book?

Learn the Basics
Python In A Day provides you with the fundamental building blocks to get you up and running in Python in no time.

Learn it Quick
Written for simplicity so that you can learn Python quickly and efficiently.

Start Coding Fast
You start coding as soon as Python is installed on your computer.

Anything else?
Yes! Lots more. For example, every single script in the book is available to view online or download, providing you with all the code you need at your finger tips!

Learning to code does not need to be difficult or complicated. This book will supercharge your Python learning experience.

Do you already have Python experience? If so, check out Python In A Day 2 which teaches topics such as GUIs, Databases and Web Scraping. Want more information? Go to the following address:

4.0 out of 5 stars A great little starters guide 6 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm very new to Python and was looking for a language I could learn that is portable across platfroms. Being an experienced programmer this was more 'Python in a couple of hours' for me, but for somebody very new to programming this is a cute little intro to the world of Python.

There are a couple of little issues though. The installation chapter: I noticed that it seems to refer to version 2.7.3, whereas I had already installed version 3.x. Some of the example didn't work. For example, the print statement seems to insist in brackets, so >>> print x (no good), >>> print (x) (OK). Similarly the built-in raw_input() function, I discovered, is superseded by input(). As I had skipped this chapter I missed the reference to version 2.7.3.

Overall a gentle introduction to Python. Suddenly the prospect of learning a new programming language doesn't seem so daunting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Book 14 Jan 2014

very pleased with book very clear instructions and you jump straight into programming on the first chapter. The book was not too expensive and is good for a reference book.

Its ok but the ad implies more. Buy it as a first book if you have no previous experience. Then save up for a proper book.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit too basic - read it in under an hour. 8 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bought this as a reasonably competent PHP programmer who wanted to try out Python as so many organisations seem to be using it.

This book is intended for people who have never really done any programming before, so it spends lots of time explaining fairly standard programming tools such as for/next loops, whereas I was looking for something that simply explained the python approach to these tools.

And then when I thought we'd get to the more interesting bits, the book ended.

If you've never programmed before then I can see value in this book, if you have some previous programming experience, use an online primer instead.
