The Little Book of Semaphores Allen B. Downey Download the book in PDF now! 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. R by example Basics Reading files Graphs Python Programming Python Programming From Wikibooks, open books for an open world Jump to: navigation, search This book describes Python, an open-source general-purpose interpreted programming language available for a broad range of operating systems. There are currently three major implementations: the standard implementation written in C, Jython written in Java, and IronPython written in C# for the .NET environment.

Creating a Basic Report in Excel 2010 using Slicers and Publish it to SharePoint - Office Buzz Blog In previous versions of Excel, one of the most powerful and least understood functions is the Pivot Table and the Pivot Chart. Inside the finance department there usually lurk some very intelligent people who know how and why Pivot's are a good idea, but outside of this environment the knowledge appears to be scarce at best! I recently started delivering a 2 minute overview of Pivot capabilities in Office 2007 to my customers through the Microsoft Buzz Day program which helps train end-users in our enterprise customers and it seemed to go down rather well across industries and across different user groups.

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 same site also contains distributions of and pointers to many free third party Python modules, programs and tools, and additional documentation. The Python interpreter is easily extended with new functions and data types implemented in C or C++ (or other languages callable from C).

Compare Comparing strings in JavaScript is quite easy, as long as you know about the equals operator and the JavaScript If Statement. This is all you need to know to find out if two strings of your choosing are equal. Below we have created a fake authentication system and use an if statement to see if the user's name will grant them access to a special message. JavaScript Code:
