Python Programming Tutorials. 6.189 A Gentle Introduction to Programming Using Python, January IAP 2008. An open source web scraping framework for Python. Beginner's Resources. I've turned up some nice beginner's resources on Python: Dive into Python is an online book teaching Python step by step, the way I like to approach things in my classes.

Beginner's Resources

Python Tutorials for Kids 8+ also looks like it'll be very useful. Invent You Own Computer Games with Python is a course using games as the draw. I've ordered a hardcopy of the book, and the book is available online for free. This makes it easy to afford using it in my classes (and students can't claim to have forgotten their textbook when it's online!) The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Python! — pythonguide 0.0.1 documentation. Welcome to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Python.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Python! — pythonguide 0.0.1 documentation

This guide is currently under heavy active development. If you’d like to help, fork us on GitHub! This opinionated guide exists to provide both novice and expert Python developers a best-practice handbook to the installation, configuration, and usage of Python on a daily basis. Getting Started. Python Software Foundation News. Planet Python. Python. Web2py. I believe that the ability to easily build high quality web applications is of critical importance for the growth of a free and open society.


This prevents the biggest players from monopolizing the flow of information. Hence I started the web2py project in 2007, primarily as a teaching tool with the goal of making web development easier, faster, and more secure. Over time, it has managed to win the affection of thousands of knowledgeable users and hundreds of developers. Our collective effort has created one of the most full-featured Open Source Web Frameworks for enterprise web development.

As a result, in 2011, web2py won the Bossie Award for best Open Source Development Software, and in 2012 it won the Technology of the Year award from InfoWorld. As you will learn in the following pages, web2py tries to lower the barrier of entry to web development by focusing on three main goals: Python and CLIPS Integration. PyCLIPS is an extension module for the Python language that embeds full CLIPS functionality in Python applications.

Python and CLIPS Integration

This means that you can provide Python with a strong, reliable, widely used and well documented inference engine. Actually, CLIPS is often taken as "reference implementation" of an expert systems shell by many programmers and groups involved in AI development. It has a forward chaining rule-based inference system, as well as all imperative and object-oriented constructs that allow full control the execution flow. PyCLIPS aims at becoming a reliable extension for Python applications, even possibly large ones, that need a rule-based inference engine. This page is the primary access point to the PyCLIPS download site, where you will find the source (released under the LGPL), binary versions and the documentation.

Python Programming in your Browser: PythonAnywhere. Python Community Group News. I’m glad to share a new project called Python for Android.

Python Community Group News

The goal of this project is to package your python application into an APK. The project is under the umbrella of Kivy organization, but is not designed to be limited to Kivy only. Read the documentation to correctly install the NDK/SDK Android, and set the needed environment variables. The packaging is done in 4 steps: 1. Ensure you have Android SDK/NDK downloaded and correctly installed 2.

Creating the python distribution is as simple as that: # create a simple distribution with python + PIL + Kivy . A directory dist/default will be created, including the result of the whole arm compilation. The second step is a little bit harder, since you need to provide more information for Android: cd dist/default . Then you’ll get a nicely bin/touchtracer-1.0-debug.apk Pro: Cons: You need a file that will be used for starting your applicationOnly one java bootstrap available, using OpenGL ES 2.0.Only Kivy toolkit is working.
