About this item

Use this book to get started in the world of software development. The author, Irv Kalb, uses his in-person teaching experience to guide you through learning the Python computer programming language.  
He uses a very conversational style to make you feel as though he is your personal tutor. The book will take you from zero knowledge of programming, through procedural programming, and even into the essence of object oriented programming (OOP).  
All material is laid out in a thoughtful manner, each lesson building on the previous lesson. And, examples are provided along the way, including a game app example.  
What You Will Learn:  
• Fundamental concepts of computer programming including: variables, functions, keyboard input, if/else, loops, lists, all the way through an introduction to Object Oriented Programming techniques.
• How to build simple text-based programs and text-based games.
This book assumes that you have absolutely no prior knowledge about programming. There is no need to learn or use any obscure Unix commands. Students of any age who have had no exposure to programming and are interested in learning to do software development in the Python language. The book can be used as a text book associated with a high school or college introduction to computer science course.  Secondly, people who have had exposure to some computer language other than Python, who would like to build good habits for programming in Python.
