Programming isn’t di cult when it’s explained properly, and our tutorials don’t just teach you how to program but also how to think like a computer programmer. This book was written by those rare people who are training experts and also advanced coders.
We’ll take you, one step at a time, from the absolute nuts and bolts of the Python language, up to advanced concepts and hardware projects. Unlike other books, we take time to explain the concepts behind computer programming and introduce you to several other languages.
Whether it’s building robots, developing drones or hacking home hardware, you can get started with us. This book doesn’t just show you how to code, it explains how to build computer controlled hardware and introduces you to electronics kits like the Raspberry Pi and BBC micro:bit.
