Python has proved itself to be a flexible, easy to learn and powerful programming language for the modern computer user and developer. Python code can be found on the desktop, in server rooms, on the Internet and working in conjunction with many IoT devices. Inside the Python Manual you will learn:
Becoming a Programmer
Regardless of whether you’re a student, computer enthusiast or just curious as to how programming works, our tutorials will help you discover how Python works and how you can use it to interact with other users. What’s more, you can start to learn how to think like a computer programmer, and how to apply your knowledge to tackle computing problems.
The Python Manual has been written to help you get into Python from the ground up. Learn where to go to download the latest and up-to-date version of Python and install and launch it from Windows, macOS, Linux computers and even the Raspberry Pi.
The tutorials in this book have been written to help you build confidence in using Python. With simple code to begin with, you can soon easily create a Python program that can ask the user’s name, store information in a database-like setting, manipulate lists of data as well as write to files in your system.
Python Code Repository
Once you’ve mastered the finer points of Python programming, and to help you in your quest for creating 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 will help you get the best from Python and your code.
Beyond The Code
We look at how you can use Linux to create your Python code, as well as object oriented programming with Scratch; there are some great projects involving robots, sensors and creating an arcade machine too. Becoming a Python programmer is more than simply knowing the language, it’s how to apply that knowledge and get the most from the code.
