Brilliant, a true masterpiece! Keep up the good work! I think it is a good book for those who are looking for a beginner's tutorial for Python. It is about two or there years ago, I think, when I first heard of this book.
At that time, I am not able to read some book in English yet, so I got a chinese translation, which took me into the gate of Python programming.
Recently, I reread this book.
This time, of course, the english version. I couldn't believe that I can read the whole book without my dictionary at hand. Of course, it all dues to your effort to make this book an easy-to-understand one. I had been attempting Python for a few months prior to stumbling across your book, and although I made limited success with pyGame, I never completed a program. Thanks to your simplification of the categories, Python actually seems a reachable goal.
It seems like I have finally learned the foundations and I can continue into my real goal, game development. Once again, thanks VERY much for placing such a structured and helpful guide to basic programming on the web. It shoved me into and out of OOP with an understanding where two text books had failed. I am a 15 year old i live in egypt my name is Ahmed.
Python was my second programming language i learn visual basic 6 at school but didn't enjoy it, however i really enjoyed learning python. I made the addressbook program and i was sucessful. I will also start on learning java and if you can tell me where to find a tutorial as good as yours for java that would help me a lot.
It is well-written, easy to follow, and may be the best introduction to Python programming available. Highly recommended as a starting point for learning Python. Excellent reads FeelGoodFactor -- Surendran "Byte of python" best one by far man in response to the question "Can anyone suggest a good, inexpensive resource for learning the basics of Python?
Thanks bigtime : Chinmay Always been a fan of A Byte of Python - made for both new and experienced programmers. The very reason I wanted to learn Python is it's popular people are talking about it and powerful reality. This book written by Mr. Swaroop is a very good guide for both brand-new programmers and new python programmers.
Took 10 half days to go through it. Great Help! This book cleared up many questions I had about certain aspects of Python such as object oriented programming. I do not feel like an expert at OO but I know this book helped me on a first step or two. I have now written several python programs that actually do real things for me as a system administrator.
They are all procedural oriented but they are small by most peoples standards. Again, thanks for this book. Thank you for having it on the web. Python is now my first language, and I can just imagine all the possibilities.
So thank you for giving me the tools to create things I never would have imagined I could do before. Needless to say, I am a beginner in the programming world, a couple of months of self study up to this point. Can't wait to read and learn more!! Thank you so much for not only writing the book, but for putting it under the creative commons license free. Without it, I would have fallen by the wayside.
Since then I have gone on to program a number of functions in my organization with this language with yet more on the horizon. I would not call myself an advanced programmer by any stretch but I notice the occasional request for assistance now from others since I started using it.
Of course, there was no explanation for this arrangement of operators and I fell on my head trying to make sense of what was on the written page. As I recall it was a most frustrating exercise which I eventually abandoned. Just as computers will not be able to understand a computer word or computer symbol that is outside the syntax for the language being used, a student new to any field will not grasp his subject if he encounters words or symbols for which there are no definitions.
You get a "blue screen" as it were in either case. The solution is simple, though: find the word or symbol and get the proper definition or symbol and lo and behold,the computer or student can proceed. Your book was so well put together that I found very little in it I couldn't grasp. So, thank you.
I encourage you to continue to include full definitions of terms.
The documentation with Python is good, once you know, the examples are its strength from what I see but in many cases it seems that you have to know in order to understand the documentation which to my mind is not what should be.
Third party tutorials express the need for clarification of the documentation and their success largely depends on the words that are used to describe the terminology. I have recommended your book to many others. Some in Australia, some in the Caribbean and yet others in the US.
It fills a niche no others do. I hope you are doing well and wish you all the success in the future.
I was facing a great difficulty to start with python. I tried a lot of books but all were bulkier and not target oriented; and then i found this lovely one, which made me love python in no time. Download this book in PDF.

The book presents a case study using data from the National Institutes of Health. Readers are encouraged to work on a project with real datasets. If you have basic skills in Python, you can use them to learn concepts in probability and statistics. Many of the exercises use short programs to run experiments and help readers develop understanding.
