  Google for Education   Welcome to Google's Python Class -- this is a free class for people with a little bit of programming experience who want to learn Python.

  Google for Education  

The class includes written materials, lecture videos, and lots of code exercises to practice Python coding. These materials are used within Google to introduce Python to people who have just a little programming experience. The first exercises work on basic Python concepts like strings and lists, building up to the later exercises which are full programs dealing with text files, processes, and http connections. The class is geared for people who have a little bit of programming experience in some language, enough to know what a "variable" or "if statement" is. Beyond that, you do not need to be an expert programmer to use this material. This material was created by Nick Parlante working in the engEDU group at Google.

Learning Python

It covers all the basics, and offers a tour of the language and the standard library. Recommended for those who need a quick-start guide to the language. Python for Beginners thepythonguru.com is a tutorial focuses on beginner programmers. Learn Python Interactive Tutorial Learnpython.org is an easy non-intimidating way to get introduced to Python. If you want a more traditional book, Python For You and Me is an excellent resource for learning all aspects of the language. Python Beginner Tutorial 1 (For Absolute Beginners) BeginnersGuide. Python. Online Python Tutor - Learn programming by visualizing code execution. Arduino and Python. For a project (check out my blog for updates) I'm working on I needed to be able to communicate with my arduino, luckily the arduino can communicate though serial.

Arduino and Python

It turns out almost any programming language can be used for serial communication but python seems to be the easiest so far. I had some problems getting it all to work and finding a basic tutorial online proved very difficult. So hopefully this guide will explain the basics to anyone that is looking to start using the serial functions that the arduino provides. I'm going to assume that if you're reading this you have some knowledge of how an arduino works and how to upload sketches and what not, however I will explain the arduino code when we get there. The python code is very basic but I will do my best to explain it as well. The code is not that hard to understand, the hard part is understanding how the serial communication works. For Beginners. Welcome!

For Beginners

Are you completely new to programming? If not then we presume you will be looking for information about why and how to get started with Python. Fortunately an experienced programmer in any programming language (whatever it may be) can pick up Python very quickly. It's also easy for beginners to use and learn, so jump in! Installing Python is generally easy, and nowadays many Linux and UNIX distributions include a recent Python.

If you want to know whether a particular application, or a library with particular functionality, is available in Python there are a number of possible sources of information. If you have a question, it's a good idea to try the FAQ, which answers the most commonly asked questions about Python. The “Invent with Python” Blog. I've written an article for OpenSource.com called APIs, not apps: What the future will be like when everyone can code, where I write about a coming future where programming ability is in the hands of everyone.

The “Invent with Python” Blog

Excerpt: Despite this hype, I do think that coding will become a more widespread and routine skill in the years to come. Programmable technology will continue to pervade more parts of our life, computers will continue to become more accessible to a wider population, and the world will continue to become more complex. Understanding coding (and debugging) will naturally go with it....These are areas where non-programmers can significantly boost their productivity by learning to code. This is different from everyone becoming a software engineer. Sortie d'un cahier d'activités Python pour coder un jeu vidéo.
