Book Preface

Why Python?

I get this question quite a bit. Why should someone learning to program learn Python? Why not a language that was made for beginners, such as Scratch? Why not learn Java or C++, which most colleges seem to be using?

Personally, I believe that Python is an ideal language for beginners. It runs on multiple systems. The syntax (the grammar of the language) isn’t fussy. It’s easy to read, and many people can walk through a simple script and understand what it’s doing without ever having written a single line of code.

It’s also ideal because it’s easy for a beginner to move on to more advanced projects. Python is used in a number of areas, from scientific computing to game development. A new programmer can almost always find one, if not multiple, projects to fit their tastes.

Who This Book Is For

This book is for those who have never programmed before and for those who have programmed some but now want to learn Python. This is not a book for those who are already experienced developers.

It is assumed you have a computer you have admin rights to. You’ll need to install Python, as well as multiple libraries and applications later in the book. The computer does not need to be terribly powerful.

You should also have an Internet connection in order to access some of the resources.
