Product Description

Product Description

This book is designed to introduce students to programming and computational thinking through the lens of exploring data. You can think of Python as your tool to solve problems that are far beyond the capability of a spreadsheet. It is an easy-to-use and easy-to learn programming language that is freely available on Windows, Macintosh, and Linux computers. There are free downloadable copies of this book in various electronic formats and a self-paced free online course where you can explore the course materials. All the supporting materials for the book are available under open and remixable licenses. This book is designed to teach people to program even if they have no prior experience.

I read this in conjunction with taking the Python for Everyone course on Coursera. I found the text to be excellent on its own or in conjunction with the course. The exercises included are well designed to develop incremental knowledge of the language.
