Coding for Python Vol 37
Getting Started with Python
Regardless of whether you’re a student, computer enthusiast or just curious about programming, our tutorials help you discover how Python works and how it can be used to interact with you and other users. What’s more, you can also start to learn how to think like a computer programmer and how to apply your knowledge in tackling computing problems. Coding for Python has been written to help you learn Python from the ground up. Learn where to download the latest up-to-date version of Python, how to install and launch it from Windows, macOS, Linux computers, and the Raspberry Pi.
Step-by-step Coding Tutorials
The tutorials in this book have been written to help you build your confidence when using Python. Starting with simple code, you will soon be able to create a Python program that can ask the user’s name, store information in a database-like setting, manipulate lists of data and even write to files in your own system.
Python Code Repository
Once you’ve mastered the finer points of Python programming, and to help you in your quest to create code, we’ve included a huge Python code repository. Here you can snip sections out or even use the entire code in your own programs. It’s a valuable tool that can help you get the best from Python and your code.
If you’re using the Raspberry Pi to develop your Python code, then it’s essential to learn how the Pi’s operating system functions, in order to get the most from your code and any future projects you have in mind. The Raspberry Pi uses Raspbian, which is a Linuxbased operating system. Linux operates differently to Windows and macOS but it’s a solid and powerful base on which to learn how to code with Python. We bring you an in-depth section within these pages to help you explore Linux and eventually master it.
