Python is an object-oriented programming. Its important philosophy is summarized by PEP 20. Like ◎ Beautiful is better than ugly. ◎ Explicit is better than implicit. ◎ Simple is better than complex. ◎ Complex is better than complicated. ◎ And so on.... The most important philosophy is "simple". So ◎ Keep it simple. When you write a Python program, the only thing you should keep in mind is the above sentence. But what is the meaning of "simple"? It is a good question, right? Simply speaking, the simple is a style and a thinking. That is to say, you should uses a direct, obvious and effective way to design a software using Python in any case. This e-book will take you to learn programming with Python. Just like the cover's image, I want to take you to go up the stairs step by step and you also learn programming with Python by this way, step by step. I think you should slow down and experience what you should know about programming. There are three parts of this e-book. ◎ Part One - Basics ◎ Part Two - Software Development ◎ Part Three - GUI Part One brings together all the basic skills about Python you need to know. Part Two introduces the basic knowledge about software development. Part Three designs a graphical user interface using Tk of the standard library. The purpose of this e-book is an introduction about programming with Python. You may need two or three months to study this e-book. The main reference of this e-book are the following web pages and books. ◎ Index of Python Enhancement Proposals ◎ The Python 2 Tutorial ◎ The Python 3.4 Tutorial ◎ Beginning Python: From Novice to Professional ◎ How to Think Like a Computer Scientist: Learning with Python, 2nd Edition (Using Python 2.x) This e-book is no advertising and best for reading on any mobile platform.
