5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic introduction, 29 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Learning Python with Raspberry Pi (Paperback)
Being a bit of a tinkerer, I find the RaspberryPi very exciting. Being a bit of a nerd I find programming intriguing. These two things combined make this book an excellent choice as a starting point, and for people with a bit of prior knowledge alike.

It is written in such a way that it introduces the most important concepts without getting bogged down in the details like some of its counterparts. I can imagine that some people who already know a bit about Python would find it frustrating because it does gloss over those details, but as a training professional I am really impressed that it keeps its eye on the prize and delivers the pertinent knowledge in exactly the right amounts, and at the right pace. The details are tackled as and when needed, so you will end up being a confident programmer, and RPi hacker.

I have been tinkering with Python for a year or two, and I learned new things within the first four chapters, so even people with a bit of experience, you will find it a useful refresher.

There are a few typos and errors, but the supporting website is excellent and it is so well written, I still rate it at 5 stars. The future is bright, our future hardware hackers and mad inventors have never had it so good.
