Non-Programmer's Tutorial for Python 3 Authors Contributors to this book Front matter Initial remarks Intro Tutorial Introduction to PyMVPA — PyMVPA 2.3.0 documentation In this tutorial we are going to take a look at all major parts of PyMVPA, introduce the most important concepts, and explore particular functionality in real-life analysis examples. This tutorial also serves as basic course material for workshops on introductions to MVPA. Please contact us, if you are interested in hosting a PyMVPA workshop at your institution. Please note that this tutorial is only concerned with aspects directly related to PyMVPA. Python for Fun This collection is a presentation of several small Python programs. They are aimed at intermediate programmers; people who have studied Python and are fairly comfortable with basic recursion and object oriented techniques. Each program is very short, never more than a couple of pages and accompanied with a write-up. I have found Python to be an excellent language to express algorithms clearly. Some of the ideas here originated in other programs in other languages.

Where The Rants Go By Zed A. Shaw I've had it. Dive Into Python is one of the worst books for learning Python and it must die.

It is a complete operating system designed to be used from a DVD, USB stick, or SD card independently of the computer's original operating system.

Introduction to Python This is the material which I use for teaching python to beginners. tld;dr: Very minimal explanation more code. Python? Interpreted languageMultiparadigm Introduction Making Games with Python and Pygame Book Description This is a programming book that covers the Pygame game library for the Python programming language. Each chapter gives you the complete source code for a new game and teaches the programming concepts from these examples. The book is available under a Creative Commons license and can be downloaded in full for free from This book was written to be understandable by kids as young as 10 to 12 years old, although it is great for anyone of any age who has some familiarity with Python. About the Authors Albert Sweigart (but you can call him Al), is a software developer in San Francisco, California who enjoys bicycling, volunteering, haunting coffee shops, and making useful software.

Running Linux From a USB Drive As a Virtual Machine or Bootable Disk Live Linux environments work just like a typical operating system but run entirely from a CD or USB stick -- the latter being the most common choice these days. Since nothing is written to the host computer’s local storage, when you’re done all you need to do is remove the media, reboot, and everything will be exactly as it was. There are a number of uses to this, from simply test driving Linux to troubleshooting a Windows PC, or work on the go from someone else’s computer but running your own OS securely with all your personal files and settings. There are basically two options when it comes to running Linux from a USB drive: from within Windows using virtualization software such as VirtualBox, or creating a boot disk.

(the eff-bot guide to) The Standard Python Library [home] [track changes (rss)] Based in part on over 3,000 newsgroup articles written by Python veteran Fredrik Lundh since 1995, this book provides brief descriptions and sample scripts for all standard modules in the Python 2.0 library. For more information on the book and the print editions, see (the eff-bot guide to) The Standard Python Library. Note that the book was written for Python 2.0, but most of the code still works in current versions. You can get the chapters in PDF form here. Table of contents
