Python Programming is unique and fun because of its approach: the reader learns to program through writing game programs. While it's enjoyable and engaging, the book covers plenty of fundamental computer science concepts and vocabulary. Topics include variables, memory, branching, loops, data structures, functions, file handling, exceptions, object-oriented programming, GUI programming, multimedia programming, and program planning. Even with all the power it offers to industry, Python is perfect for beginners. It has clear, simple syntax and is robust yet concise. Python Programming is the most fun way to learn the basics of programming using an easy-to-learn but powerful industry-standard programming language.
