Learning Python: Powerful Object-Oriented Programming (4th Edition)

Google and YouTube use Python simply because it's hugely adaptable, effortless to keep up, and enables quick improvement. for you to write top of the range, effective code that's simply built-in with different languages and instruments, this hands-on booklet may also help you be efficient with Python quick -- no matter if you're new to programming or simply new to Python.

Real Python: An Introduction to Python Through Practical Examples

An book to educate programming via hands-on, attention-grabbing examples which are beneficial and fun!

Python is a brilliant programming language. It's loose, robust, more straightforward to learn than such a lot languages, and has extensions to be had to do nearly whatever you may think automatically.

But how do you certainly use it? There are a whole bunch assets in the market for studying Python, yet none of them are very sensible or fascinating - in its place, they move over each one inspiration one after the other, by no means tying whatever jointly, yet spending lots of time misplaced in technical language, discussing the twenty other ways to complete each one simple job. ..

I are looking to write an book that at last provides a concise creation to every little thing chances are you'll truly are looking to do with Python.

We'll commence with a short yet thorough evaluation of all of the fundamentals, so that you don't even want any past adventure with programming. however the majority of the e-book should be spent build up instance code to resolve attention-grabbing real-world problems.

Python is astounding for automating repetitive projects that may differently take you hours - for example, fast collecting information from the net, or renaming enormous quantities of documents. a few of the subject matters that I'm making plans to cover:

Collecting information from webpages (web scraping)
Interacting with PDF documents - analyzing information, growing PDFs, enhancing pages, including passwords. ..
Interacting with Excel documents (less performance in OS X)
Calling different open air courses from inside of Python
Files - read/write/modify, unzip, rename, circulation, etc.
Basic video game development
Interacting with SQL databases (internal and ODBC connections)
GUI (Graphical person Interface) layout - growing easy point-and-click courses that any one can use
Any different themes that you simply, my backers, are such a lot in!
Update: by way of well known call for, I'll be including internet program development

Python Algorithms: Mastering Basic Algorithms in the Python Language

Python Algorithms explains the Python method of set of rules research and layout.

Written by way of Magnus Lie Hetland, writer of starting Python, this ebook is sharply taken with classical algorithms, however it additionally provides a great figuring out of primary algorithmic problem-solving suggestions.

The e-book bargains with the most very important and difficult parts of programming and desktop technology, yet in a hugely pedagogic and readable manner.

The booklet covers either algorithmic idea and programming perform, demonstrating how thought is mirrored in genuine Python programs.

Well-known algorithms and information constructions which are equipped into the Python language are defined, and the consumer is proven find out how to enforce and overview others himself.

Sample text

You may be wondering why the parentheses are there. The parentheses indicate to the string that it should expect to see a sequence that contains the values to be used by the string to populate its format specifiers. Sequences are a very important part of programming in Python, and they are covered in some detail later. For now, we are just going to use them. What is important to know at this point is that every format specification in a string has to have an element that matches it in the sequence that’s provided to it.

However, to make using data more flexible and easy, you want to give the data names that can be used to refer to them. Chapter 3 Try It Out Assigning Values to Names These names are commonly called variables, which indicates that the data to which they refer can vary (it can be changed), while the name remains the same. You’ll see them referred to as names, as well, because that is what you are presented with by Python. >>> first_string = “This is a string” >>> second_string = “This is another string” >>> first_number = 4 >>> second_number = 5 >>> print “The first variables are %s, %s, %d, %d” % (first_string, second_string, first_number, second_number) The first variables are This is a string, This is another string, 4, 5 How It Works You can see that you can associate a name with a value — either a string or an integer — by using the equals (=) sign.

Different Kinds of Numbers If you have ever used a spreadsheet, you’ve noticed that the spreadsheet doesn’t just look at numbers as numbers but as different kinds of numbers. Depending on how you’ve formatted a cell, the spreadsheet will have different ways of displaying the numbers. 00. 2. When you name a price you’re willing to pay for a new house, you probably only think to the nearest thousand dollars. At the large end of numbers, your electricity bills are sent to you with meter readings that come in at kilowatt hours, which are each one thousand watts per hour.
