Python's IDLE editor: How to Use - by Dr A. Dawson Copyright Dr A Dawson 2005 - 2016 This file is: Python_Editor_IDLE.htm First created: Tuesday 8th March 2005, 7:28 PT, ADLast updated: Saturday 31st January 2015, 9:05 PT, AD This page explains how to run the IDLE integrated development environment (IDE) for editing and running Python 2.x or Python 3 programs. Watch the IDLE Editor movie below (11 minutes)... Python Editor IDLE movie Notice that with syntax highlighting, Python keywords, comments, literal text etc are displayed in different colours or fonts, which makes it much easier for programmers to find errors in their program code. Which version of Python should you install? More Python Resources Follow these instructions to write and run a simple Python program using the IDLE editor: 1. 2. 4. 5. 8. 10.

Think Python: How to Think Like a Computer Scientist How to Think Like a Computer Scientist by Allen B. Downey This is the first edition of Think Python. It uses Python 2, with notes on differences in Python 3. If you are using Python 3, you might want to switch to the second edition. Buy this book at Download Think Python in PDF. Read Think Python in HTML. Example programs and solutions to some problems are here (links to specific examples are in the book). Description Think Python is an introduction to Python programming for beginners. Some examples and exercises are based on Swampy, a Python package written by the author to demonstrate aspects of software design, and to give readers a chance to experiment with simple graphics and animation. Think Python is a Free Book. If you have comments, corrections or suggestions, please send me email at feedback{at}thinkpython{dot}com.

Welcome to PythonBooks - Learn Python the easy way ! Online Python Tutor - Learn programming by visualizing code execution A Byte of Python Python Weekly: A Free, Weekly Python E-mail Newsletter Google'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.

Runestone Interactive The One-Stop Shop for Big Data If you have decided to learn Python as your programming language. “What are the different Python libraries available to perform data analysis?” This will be the next question in your mind. There are many libraries available to perform data analysis in Python. Don’t worry; you don’t have to learn all of those libraries. So let’s get started, Numpy It is the foundation on which all higher level tools for scientific Python are built. N- Dimensional array, a fast and memory efficient multidimensional array providing vectorized arithmetic operations. NumPy does not provide high-level data analysis functionality, having an understanding of NumPy arrays and array-oriented computing will help you use tools like Pandas much more effectively. Tutorials Scipy The SciPy library depends on NumPy, which provides convenient and fast N-dimensional array manipulation. Tutorial I couldn’t find any good tutorial other than Pandas Pandas is the best tool for doing data munging. Matplotlib Scikit-learn

Automate the Boring Stuff with Python | Practical Programming for Total Beginners 10 interesting Python modules to learn in 2016 | DiscoverSDK Blog In this article I will give you an introduction into some Python modules I think of as useful. Naturally this can vary in your case but anyway it is a good idea to look at them, maybe you will use them in the future. I won't give a thorough introduction for each module because it would blow-up the boundaries of this article. However I will try to give you a fair summary on the module: what id does and how you can use it in the future if you are interested. For a detailed introduction you have to wait for either future articles which explain these libraries in more depth or you have to search the web to find resources. ( In some languages static typing is the only way to go. Python 3.5 introduced the standard for type annotations where you can annotate your code to display what type the function parameters should have and what type the function returns for example. >>> def add(a: int, b: int) -> int:... return a+b ... The example function above adds two variables. The

ŷhat | Moving from R to Python: The Libraries You Need to Know Why the switch? One of my favorite parts of machine learning in Python is that it got the benefit of observing the R community and then emulating the best parts of it. I'm a big believer that a language is only as helpful as its libraries. So in this post I'm going to go over some critical packages that I use almost every time I work in R, and their counterpart(s) in Python. glm, knn, randomForest, e1071 (yes, this is actually a meaningful package's name) -> scikit-learn One thing that is a blessing and a curse in R is that the machine learning algorithms are generally segmented by package. reshape/reshape2, plyr/dplyr -> pandas This was actually the subject of one of our first posts. pandas took the best parts of data munging in R and turned it into a Python package. ggplot2 -> ggplot + seaborn + bokeh One thing that R still does better than Python is plotting. stringr -> nothing String manipulation in "base R" is nearly as unintuitive as it is silly.
