Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A direct competitor to Java, this user-friendly, object-oriented language is quickly becoming popular amongst students and instructors because it is an ideal first language. This beginning text introduces fundamental programming and problem-solving concepts to students beginning computer science while covering version 3.0. Practitioners Miller and Ranum include a range of exercises, making this also suitable for self-study, as they cover committed elements, naming objects, abstraction, and repetition. They explain why Python is named Python, the math module, codes and other secrets, the Python Collections (including storing data for processing, simple dispersion, general tendency, and frequency distribution), Pycture Perfect programs, data mining through cluster analysis, and cryptonalysis, then concentrate on applications in fractals, astronomy, simulation, geometry, and even video games. The result is easy to read and easy to apply in or out of the classroom. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

A user-friendly, object-oriented language, Python is quickly becoming the favorite introductory programming language among students and instructors. Many find Python to be a more lucid language than Java but with much of the functionality and therefore the ideal first language for those entering the world of Computer Science. Python Programming in Context is a clear, accessible introduction to the fundamental programming and problem solving concepts necessary for students at this level. The authors carefully build upon the many important computer science concepts and problem solving techniques throughout the text and offer relevant, real-world examples and exercises to reinforce key material. Programming skills throughout the text are linked to applied areas such as Image Processing, Cryptography, Astronomy, Music, the Internet, and Bioinformatics, giving students a well rounded look of its capabilities.
