Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Apr 03, Amanda Sullivan rated it did not like it. The 2nd edition still carries a huge dependency on Python 2, despite claiming to cover Python 3.

This is an immediate problem, as your first instruction print “Hello World. In Python 3, you need to include parentheses. So you should be instructed to print “Hello World”. I really enjoy Hetland’s writing style, so I wish I could rate this higher It works against you and not for you.

I would recommend ‘Automate the Bor The 2nd edition still carries a huge dependency on Python 2, despite claiming to cover Python 3. I would recommend ‘Automate the Boring Stuff with Python’ instead. It’s in the same vein as introductory Python guides, and is completely up to date.

Beginning Python: From Novice to Professional by Magnus Lie Hetland

The use and examples of programs in the book helped a beginner like me in becoming more conversant with the python language.

The projects and exercises turns one into an advance-like programmer. Good for beginners into even programming not just Python, can be a bit boring if you are not new into programming. Definitely will use it as reference whenever i need help. Dec 08, Ankit rated it it was amazing. Great book to start with your Python journey. A brilliant book this. It delivered that information which I wished were in my possession.

So now I can program in Python. Well, OK book; however somewhat haphazard structure makes it confusing. An excellent book for those learning to program on a fundamental level.

In his book, Mr. Hetland, makes learning the Python language a fun experience by livening it with quirky remarks to remove the dry aire that so often surround technically oriented books. This as he gradually works you through the fundamentals of the language to more advanced topics, and closes with some basic programs to firm-up what knowledge he shared in the text of the book.

Then at the end of each chapter there is a revi An excellent book for those learning to program beginnibg a fundamental level. Overall, a great read. Feb 02, Ji rated it liked it Shelves: I haven’t really finished reading every piece of it, but it’s good enough to call it a closure – and I might keep it for future reference. Given that I had pretty low expectation of this book based on its title, it’s surprisingly well written and covered quite some non-trivial grounds for beginnibg Python programming.

It’s worth recommending for a Python beginner’s book – substantial, and well ordered indeed. Jan 19, Tadas Talaikis rated it really liked it. You can go insane when trying to recall how to differentiate between R, Pythin, Lua, etc. Maybe I should end my search for ideal solution for my needs and go for Matlab instead. Open source changes too fast and what worked yesterday, today needs a lot of time fixing.

Books here are dead in 21st century. Feb 02, Paul Childs rated it liked it Shelves: Good book for learning the basics. It gave me a good understanding of basic Python programming and syntax. There were chapters within that introduced working with graphics, networking, files and such. These chapters are not always as complete as one might wish, but they do give you an idea of what is involved which for this book is enough. It was such thorough introduction to python. Quite certainly a useful start to the language.

Beginning Python

Buon libro per iniziare a studiare Python, anche se lo stile dell’autore, che cerca di essere colloquiale, tende ad essere a volte confusionario, saltando da un concetto all’altro in un libero flusso di pensieri Apr 07, John Svazic rated it really liked it. Excellent book, especially liee someone new to Python. It’s a little old doesn’t cover Python 3. Jul 30, Mohammad Shaker rated it liked it. Start from very basic level, as it assume u uetland barely ntn with programming before, although it’s good indeed.
