s Python Class - Educational Materials 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. 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. To get started, the Python sections are linked at the left -- Python Set Up to get Python installed on your machine, Python Introduction for an introduction to the language, and then Python Strings starts the coding material, leading to the first exercise.

The Python Tutorial — Python v3.3a0 documentation Python is an easy to learn, powerful programming language. It has efficient high-level data structures and a simple but effective approach to object-oriented programming. Python’s elegant syntax and dynamic typing, together with its interpreted nature, make it an ideal language for scripting and rapid application development in many areas on most platforms. The Python interpreter and the extensive standard library are freely available in source or binary form for all major platforms from the Python Web site, and may be freely distributed. The Python interpreter is easily extended with new functions and data types implemented in C or C++ (or other languages callable from C). This tutorial introduces the reader informally to the basic concepts and features of the Python language and system. For a description of standard objects and modules, see The Python Standard Library. The Glossary is also worth going through.

SLAV WEE Project - home Dive Into HTML5 PythonBooks - Learn Python the easy way ! Hacking Secret Ciphers with Python “Hacking Secret Ciphers with Python” teaches complete beginners how to program in the Python programming language. The reader not only learns about several classical ciphers, but also how to write programs that encrypt and hack these ciphers. The full source code is given and explained line-by-line for ciphers such as the Caesar cipher, transposition cipher, simple substitution cipher, multiplicative & affine ciphers, Vigenere cipher, and hacking programs for each of these ciphers. 100% of the proceeds from this book are donated to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Creative Commons, and the Tor Project. This book is aimed at middle and high school students or adults. Download the .pdf version for free. Python & Cryptography Books I Recommend (if you don't mind paying) These books take a more conventional approach to covering programming concepts.

Python Is Antivirus Software a Waste of Money? | Wired Enterprise Jeremiah Grossman is the kind of guy you’d expect to be super paranoid when it comes to computer security. He was on the front lines at Yahoo more than a decade ago when a hacker named MafiaBoy was abusing the site with DDoS attacks. Now Chief Technology Officer at security consultancy White Hat Security, Grossman spends his time fighting web intruders for his company’s clients. When it comes to computer security, he’s paranoid — and for good reason. He’s seen what the bad guys can do. As it turns out, many of his security-minded peers don’t use it either. Dan Guido, the CEO of security startup Trail of Bits also doesn’t use AV. It’s a story we heard again and again at RSA this week. “Ten years ago if you were to ask someone the question, ‘Do you need antivirus?’ The problem is that most criminals are smart enough to test their attacks against popular antivirus products. You Do and You Don’t The short answer is: yes they do. White Hat’s Grossman agrees.
