Google and YouTube use Python because it's highly adaptable, easy to maintain, and allows for rapid development. If you want to write high-quality, efficient code that's easily integrated with other languages and tools, this hands-on book will help you be productive with Python quickly whether you're new to programming or just new to Python. It's an easy-to-follow self-paced tutorial, based on author and Python expert Mark Lutz's popular training course.

Each chapter contains a stand-alone lesson on a key component of the language, and includes a unique Test Your Knowledge section with practical exercises and quizzes, so you can practice new skills and test your understanding as you go. You'll find lots of annotated examples and illustrations to help you get started with Python 3.0.

* Learn about Python's major built-in object types, such as numbers, lists, and dictionaries

* Create and process objects using Python statements, and learn Python's general syntax model

* Structure and reuse code using functions, Python's basic procedural tool

* Learn about Python modules: packages of statements, functions, and other tools, organized into larger components

* Discover Python's object-oriented programming tool for structuring code

* Learn about the exception-handling model, and development tools for writing larger programs

* Explore advanced Python tools including decorators, descriptors, metaclasses, and Unicode processing

Now with 4th Edition goodness!

The app was just updated to 4th edition, I'm happy! It's even updated to a fresher Stanza reader (at least gleaning from the page flip animation). Getting a few O'reilly books for about $5 pretty much pays for my iPod.

<scratch label="that">The app store has the pic for the 4th edition cover, but this is definitely the 3rd edition. Not what I paid for.</scratch> If anybody at the app store sees the problem report I filed (and can't send a followup on), I'll keep this after all!

4/5 stars


Great python reference!
