Summary

Hello! Python fully covers the building blocks of Python programming and gives you a gentle introduction to more advanced topics such as object-oriented programming, functional programming, network programming, and program design. New (or nearly new) programmers will learn most of what they need to know to start using Python immediately. About this Book

Programmers love Python because it's fast and efficient. Shouldn't learning Python be just the same? Hello! Python starts quickly and simply, with a line of Python code. You'll learn the basics the right way--by writing your own programs. Along the way, you'll get a gentle introduction to more advanced concepts and new programming styles.>

No experience with Python needed. Exposure to another programming language is helpful but not required.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book. What Makes Hello! Python special

Python 3 is an open-source programming language that can be used to develop any application imaginable-business, games, web, and more.

We think it should be just as much fun to learn Python as it is to use it. And we know that fun learning gets better results. Hello! Python is a fast-paced, entertaining introduction to Python, for readers new to Python and programming. In this book, User Friendly cartoon characters offer commentary and snide side comments, as the book moves quickly from "hello world" into practical techniques.
