bookshelves: tech

5 stars for beginners.
3 stars for programmers who already know how to program in another interpreted programming language like Ruby.

TL;DR: It’s a book recommended for novices, for me, it’s a good book for beginners, but for people who already know how to program in other dynamic and interpreted programming language, I think is not necessary to read this book, go ahead an read something more advanced.

The book is divided into two parts, the first one talks about all the basic things of any programming language like variables, loops, ifs/else and etc. This part is good to understand the basic of python. This part covers all between variables and manipulates text.

The most interesting is the second part when you create a lot of applications to automate boring stuff, but the first part is good to understand and knows the python basic. One thing that I loved on this book is the fact that it has a lot of exercises (with answers) to you train what you learned on the chapter, if you do all the exercises your read will be funnier and you’ll learn much more.

Conclusion: The only bad thing on this book is that this is a simple book for people that already know how to program, but this is not a problem because the book doesn’t say that is something advanced, but even for who already knows how to program, the second part with practical projects can be very good.
