In addition to giving a strong foundation in the language itself, Lubanovic shows how to use it for a range of applications in business, science, and the arts, drawing on the rich collection of open source packages developed by Python fans. It’s impressive how many commercial and production-critical programs are written now in Python. Inroducing to be easy to read and maintain, it has proven a boon to anyone who wants applications that are quick to write but robust and able to remain in production for the long haul.

This is actually the lubanogic book about Python I’ve read even though I’ve used it extensively throughout the years. My perception that this book proves is that Pythonistas are usually not programmers by trade, they’d come to programming either due to a lucky coincidence or by taking a wrong turn on the road of career hopping.
This book has promised to give a broad look on the Python’s ecosystem, it actually delivers on what it promises. But this look is so shallow that I can’t recommend this book fo This is actually the first book about Python I’ve read even though I’ve used it extensively throughout the years. But this look is so shallow that I can’t recommend this book for those who’s willing to get a deep dive into Python on a weekend. The technical details it gives look like author’s waving the hands in the air with no actual proof that I’m used to in Scala and Java books.
Introducing Python: Modern Computing in Simple Packages by Bill Lubanovic
Nov 28, Anton Lubanovlc rated it it was amazing Shelves: If you are an experienced programmer and want to test your Python skills or want to pick Python up in a weekend, this is the right book for you.
Introducing Python is nothing short of amazing. I’m convinced that this book will show you everything needed to master Python. Jul 30, Samuel marked it as to-read Shelves: May 25, Carsten rated it really liked it. I needed a quick Python refresher as I want to use Python for machine learning projects.
I might read chapters 8, 10 and 12 at some point. I can say that the book is well written and occasionally very funny. Feb 03, Ben Hughes rated it really liked it. This is a pretty good introduction to Python, though perhaps more beginner-oriented. Some of the content is outdated targeting python 3.
This probably serves as an approachable introduction after which reading the official Python documentation is useful. Nov 16, Matthew rated it really liked it. I really have no idea why the topics are laid out in the order they are.
However when you find the section you need, the book is brilliant. So with that said I found gaps in the index which normally wouldn’t bother me as much as they did with this. But, in the end, it never let me down and I found the teaching style and explanations to be top notch. I am very glad I went with this book! Jun 02, David rated it liked it.
The OO chapter could have done a better job explaining things. There are some minor code typos throughout, but nothing egregious. The exercises were generally easy to medium difficulty, but they were useful in solidifying the lessons of each chapter. Overall a pretty good book. Jun 25, Burke Fitzpatrick rated it it was amazing. This was a great overview of what’s possible with Python.
It touched on several language features that I don’t use that often, and it helped me track down a couple of useful modules that I want to learn more about. Sep 18, Alessandro Piovaccari rated it really liked it. This is a great book to learn to program in Python. It is very comprehensive and contain a lot of reference for further reading and learning.
The only caveat is that the book is a little dated and some of the examples do not work anymore and require a little debugging. Dec 25, Kanstantin Tsiarokhin rated it it was amazing. Great book for introduction to Python programming language.
Aug 23, Karla Winick-Ford rated it did not like it. Just didn’t get it. It’s over my head. It’s book-speak, wish it were connected with multi-media clips with visual or auditory learning possibilities. Jul 07, John Pyrce rated it really liked it. Good overview of Python, aimed at non-programmers but covering a wealth of materials.
It gives a good overview of the landscape, but its a bit intimidating in its breadth. Dec 29, Gregory Graham rated it it was amazing.
The book is well organized for someone who already knows how to program, and it covers a lot breadth of not only the Python language, but a lot of the libraries that make Python so useful. The author is obviously very experienced and knowledgable. This book is perfect for the experienced programmer wanting to learn Python as a new language. It is not suitable for someone who doesn’t know how to program.
Feb 08, Quang rated it it was amazing. This book is perfect for me on start learning Python. It’s clear and to the point It covers basics data, flow, object in detail and intro on some advanced topics Web, concurency, debugging. I would recommend this book to whoever want to begin in Python. Sep 01, John Paul rated it really liked it. Explained the concepts well and introduced a couple of useful features in Python 3.
