Since the Python source code is granted to the public domain, that requirement is waived. This tutorial is more or less a conversion of Non-Programmer's Tutorial for Python 2.6. The Non-Programmers' Tutorial For Python 3 is a tutorial designed to be an introduction to the Python programming language. If you have programmed in other languages I recommend using Python Tutorial for Programmers written by Guido van Rossum.

Python Tutorial The Python tutorial is constructed to teach you the fundamentals of the Python programming language. Eventually, the Python Tutorial will explain how to construct web applications, but currently, you will learn the basics of Python offline. Python can work on the Server Side (on the server hosting the website) or on your computer. However, Python is not strictly a web programming language. Python works much like the two previous categories, PHP and ColdFusion as they are all server side programming languages. For a more tangible and better look into the Python language, consider reading the following book. Your code will execute in this window. Let's explore some more tutorials or topics!

Teaching with Python by John M. Zelle, Ph.D. I have written an introductory CS textbook using Python. It is published by Franklin, Beedle & Associates. If you are interested in reviewing or adopting this textbook, contact Jim Leisy at FBA. Simple Graphics Library: graphics.py I have developed an easy-to-use graphics library to introduce object-oriented concepts. Why Python for CS1? At Wartburg College we have been using Python extensively in our curriculum since 1998. Python as a First Language Paper presented at 13th Annual Midwest Computer Conference, March 1999. Teaching Computer Science with Python HTML version of a workshop I presented at SIGCSE 2004. sigcse-slides.pdf is a PDF file of the slides, and sigcse-handout.pdf is a handout with 4 slides per page. Simple not Simplistic: Squeezing the most from CS1 with Python HTML version of a talk I presented at CCSC Fall 2003. ccsc-slides.pdf is a PDF file of the slides, and ccsc-handout.pdf is a handout with 4 slides per page.

Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python Django Book, The - 2.0 10 Engaging Python projects | Raspebrry Pi, python, CPC 10 Engaging Python Projects is a series of worksheets I have produced to introduce Key Stage 2 and 3 students to the world of the Raspberry Pi and programming in Python. I started creating some worksheets for my own school Pi club and then thought - why not make it into a free iBook. The iBook is free and will also be available as a PDF if requested by schools. The projects are available in an iBook format for Mac and iPad from the Apple iBook Store here The projects are based around the Traffic Light Kit available from CPC for £4.79 including VAT and can be bought here A draft of the booklet can be downloaded here Projects include: Making 1 LED flash with the GPIOMorse code flashesDisco lights with there LEDsReaction time gameTraffic lightsI would love your feedback on this resource as I will be using this with my own Pi club at school.

The Python Tutorial — Python v3.0.1 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). This tutorial introduces the reader informally to the basic concepts and features of the Python language and system.

Tutorial - Learn Python in 10 minutes NOTE: If you would like some Python development done, my company, Stochastic Technologies, is available for consulting. This tutorial is available as a short ebook. The e-book features extra content from follow-up posts on various Python best practices, all in a convenient, self-contained format. All future updates are free for people who purchase it. Preliminary fluff So, you want to learn the Python programming language but can’t find a concise and yet full-featured tutorial. We will focus on Python 3, as that is the version you should use. Properties Python is strongly typed (i.e. types are enforced), dynamically, implicitly typed (i.e. you don’t have to declare variables), case sensitive (i.e. var and VAR are two different variables) and object-oriented (i.e. everything is an object). Getting help Help in Python is always available right in the interpreter. >>> help(5)Help on int object:(etc etc) >>> dir(5)['__abs__', '__add__', ...] >>> abs. Syntax Data types Strings Flow control statements

Controlling LEDs with Scratch on Raspberry Pi Scratch is a great programming environment for people of all ages, as it allows the total beginner to create all sorts of interactive programs and fun with a simple graphical environment. You can also run Scratch on a Raspberry Pi, and to make things even more interesting you can now control the GPIO pins from Scratch with the help of the instructions by Scractchmypi. By using a modified version of Scratch, new instrions are available to control the GPIO pins, and thus have some blinky fun with LEDs or perhaps control items of a more serious nature. Either way, it adds to the fun and gives teachers an option to explore basic electronics - so visit the instruction page to learn how. And for more, we're on facebook, Google+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well. If you're looking for a more permanent way to mount circuitry to your Raspberry Pi, check out our new PiBreak - the prototyping board for the Raspberry Pi.
