Python tutorial

Python tutorial
Python is a general-purpose interpreted, interactive, object-oriented, and high-level programming language. It was created by Guido van Rossum during 1985- 1990. Like Perl, Python source code is also available under the GNU General Public License (GPL). This tutorial gives enough understanding on Python programming language. This tutorial is designed for software programmers who need to learn Python programming language from scratch. You should have a basic understanding of Computer Programming terminologies. For most of the examples given in this tutorial you will find Try it option, so just make use of it and enjoy your learning. Try following example using Try it option available at the top right corner of the below sample code box − #!

PhD Thesis – Modelled on Software Engineering: Flexible Parametric Models in the Practice of Architecture In my PhD thesis I explore the relationship between software engineering and the design of flexible parametric models. It’s a little too long to fit on a single webpage, so either jump into the specific sections using the contents below, download the whole thing as a PDF, or buy a print copy from Lulu (at cost).

The Python Tutorial 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).

The Python Standard Library While The Python Language Reference describes the exact syntax and semantics of the Python language, this library reference manual describes the standard library that is distributed with Python. It also describes some of the optional components that are commonly included in Python distributions. Python’s standard library is very extensive, offering a wide range of facilities as indicated by the long table of contents listed below.

Graphics with Matplotlib Matplotlib is a large and sophisticated graphics package for Python written in object oriented style. However, a layer built on top of this basic structure called pyplot accesses the underlying package using function calls. We describe a simple but useful subset of pyplot here. 4.1 Line plots 4.1.1 Simple plots Android Developer SDK Before installing Android Studio or the standalone SDK tools, you must agree to the following terms and conditions. This is the Android Software Development Kit License Agreement 1. Introduction Tutorial 6 - Brick wall Introduction Result of this tutorial This tutorial will be about creating a curved brick wall using a 'stretcher bond' brick pattern that consists of bricks of the same size laid from the mid of each bricks above and below. In this tutorial you will you will use mathematical functions to generate the wall and will use the dispatch function to achieve the 'stretcher bond' pattern. The Design As said before, the task of this tutorial is to make a curve brick will with a 'stretcher bond' brick pattern.

pygsear ~~: Pygame Framework and Examples pygsear -- Pygame Framework and Examples pygsear home at savannah pygsear is a set of python libraries which work with pygame. pygsear takes care of much of the lower level setup of sprites and events and objects so that you can get right to the coding of your game. Cocoa Touch - iOS Technology Overview Built on Objective-C Much of Cocoa Touch is implemented in Objective-C, an object-oriented language that is compiled to run at incredible speed, yet employs a truly dynamic runtime making it uniquely flexible. Because Objective-C is a superset of C, it is easy to mix C and even C++ into your Cocoa Touch applications.
