This book provides an introduction to the Python programming language. Python is
a popular programming language used for both standalone programs and scripting
applications in a wide variety of domains. It is free, portable, powerful, and remarkably
easy to use.
Whether you are new to programming or a professional developer, this book’s goal is
to bring you quickly up to speed on the fundamentals of the core Python language.
Head First Python“is a great introduction to not just the Python language, but Python as it’s used in the real world. The book goes beyond the syntax to teach you how to create applications for Android phones, Google’s App Engine, and more.” — David Griffiths, author and Agile coach “Where other books start with theory and progress to examples, Head First Python jumps right in with code and explains the theory as you read along. This is a much more effective learning environment, because it engages the reader to do from the very beginning. It was also just a joy...
A Byte of Python' is a book on programming using the Python language. It serves as a tutorial or guide to the Python language for a beginner audience. If all you know about computers is how to save text files, then this is the book for you. This book is updated for the new Python 3.0 language. If you are looking for a tutorial on the current Python 2.x version, please download the previous revision of the book
Python for Data Analysis is concerned with the nuts and bolts of manipulating, processing, cleaning, and crunching data in Python. It is also a practical, modern introduction to scientific computing in Python, tailored for data-intensive applications. This is a book about the parts of the Python language and libraries you’ll need to effectively solve a broad set of data analysis problems. This book is not an exposition on analytical methods using Python as the implementation language.
The Natural Language Toolkit is a suite of program modules, data sets and tutorials supporting research and teaching in computational linguistics and natural language processing. NLTK is written in Python and distributed under the GPL open source license. Over the past year the toolkit has been rewritten, simplifying many linguistic data structures and taking advantage of recent enhancements in the Python language. This paper reports on the simpliﬁed toolkit and explains how it is used in teaching NLP....
The Python 2.1 Bible provides the only complete Python language reference on the market and includes all the information and software that developers need to use Python as a rapid application development tool.
Here it is—a shiny new edition of Beginning Python. If you count its predecessor, Practical
Python, this is actually the third edition, and a book I’ve been involved with for the better part
of a decade. During this time, Python has seen many interesting changes, and I’ve done my best
to update my introduction to the language. At the moment, Python is facing perhaps its most
marked transition in a very long time: the introduction of version 3. As I write this, the final release
isn’t out yet, but the features are clearly defined and working versions are available.
Welcome to Python 3.1!
I’ve been working with Python for about ten years now, and every new version has caused me to fall in
love with the language all over again. Version 3.1 is no different. If you are new to Python, rest easy —
I’ll guide you every step of the way. If, on the other hand, you are an old Python hand exploring the new
version, the book is structured so that you can learn the new information you need, without wasting
time on already-known information.
I wanted to write this book because I love Python. I love it! And I want to share...
A shell script is just a series of python commands entered line-by-line into a file. By typing the name of the shell script after the pythonexecutable, all the commands will be run in order.The different programming languages support different styles of programming (called programming methods). Part of the programming task is the selection of one of the most suitable language to solve problems. The different programming languages require the programmer to handle the details at different levels of installed algorithms....
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.
Python được viết từ những ngôn ngữ khác, tạo ra những bản hiện thực khác nhau. Bản hiện thực Python chính, còn gọi là CPython, được viết bằng C, và được phân phối kèm một thư viện chuẩn lớn được viết hỗn hợp bằng C và Python.
Making Games with Python & Pygame is a programming book that covers the Pygame game library for the Python programming language. Each chapter gives you the complete source code for a new game and teaches the programming concepts from these examples. The book is available under a Creative Commons license and can be downloaded in full for free from http://inventwithpython.com/pygame This book was written to be understandable by kids as young as 10 to 12 years old, although it is great for anyone of any age who has some familiarity with Python. From the book: When you get down to...

BOOK DESCRIPTION This book offers a highly accessible introduction to Natural Language Processing, the field that underpins a variety of language technologies, ranging from predictive text and email filtering to automatic summarization and translation. With Natural Language Processing with Python, you’ll learn how to write Python programs to work with large collections of unstructured text. You’ll access richly-annotated datasets using a comprehensive range of linguistic data structures.
Dive Into Python is a Python book for experienced programmers. Whether you’re an experienced programmer looking to get into Python or grizzled Python veteran who remembers the days when you had to import the string module, Dive Into Python is your ’desert island’ Python book. If you’ve never programmed before, Python is an excellent language to learn modern programming techniques. But this book should not be your starting point. Get "How to Think Like a Computer Scientist: Learning with Python" by Allen Downey, Jeffrey Elkner, Chris Meyers and learn the basics. ...
“Head First Programming does a great job teaching programming using an iterative process. Add a little, explain a little, make the program a little better. This is how programming works in the real world and Head First Programming makes use of that in a teaching forum. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to start dabbling in programming but doesn’t know where to start. I’d also recommend this book to anyone not necessarily new to programming, but curious about Python.
This book is about programming. So, what is programming? The term programming means to
create (or develop) software, which is also called a program. In basic terms, software contains
the instructions that tell a computer—or a computerized device—what to do.
Software is all around you, even in devices that you might not think would need it. Of
course, you expect to find and use software on a personal computer, but software also plays a
role in running airplanes, cars, cell phones, and even toasters.
If you want to learn how to program, working with Python is an excellent way to start. This hands-on guide takes you through the language one step at a time, beginning with basic programming concepts before moving on to functions, recursion, data structures, and object-oriented design.
Through exercises in each chapter, you’ll try out programming concepts as you learn them. Think Python is ideal for students at the high school or college level, as well as self-learners, home-schooled students, and professionals who need to learn programming basics....
The primary purpose of this book is to help scientists and engineers working intensively with computers to become more productive, have more fun, and increase the reliability of their investigations. Scripting in the Python programming language can be a key tool for reaching these goals [27,29]. The term scripting means diﬀerent things to diﬀerent people. By scripting I mean developing programs of an administering nature, mostly to organize your work, using languages where the abstraction level is higher and programming is more convenient than in Fortran, C, C++, or Java.
