Getting Started with Python Programming and Scripting in Linux - Part 1 It has been said (and often required by recruitment agencies) that system administrators need to be proficient in a scripting language. While most of us may be comfortable using Bash (or other shell of our choice) to run command-line scripts, a powerful language such as Python can add several benefits. To begin with, Python allows us to access the tools of the command-line environment and to make use of Object Oriented Programming features (more on this later in this article). On top of it, learning Python can boost your career in the fields of desktop applications and data science. Being so easy to learn, so vastly used, and having a plethora of ready-to-use modules (external files that contain Python statements), no wonder Python is the preferred language to teach programming to first-year computer science students in the United States.
Pong Pong (marketed as PONG) is one of the earliest arcade video games; it is a tennis sports game featuring simple two-dimensional graphics. While other arcade video games such as Computer Space came before it, Pong was one of the first video games to reach mainstream popularity. The aim is to defeat the opponent in a simulated table tennis game by earning a higher score. The game was originally manufactured by Atari Incorporated (Atari), who released it in 1972. Allan Alcorn created Pong as a training exercise assigned to him by Atari co-founder Nolan Bushnell.

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.
Build a Mean Productivity Machine for Under $1K We found more ways than we expected to add speed to an everyday-use PC designed for using medium-high-end software—especially in one surprising place and all for under $1,000. Here at PCMag.com, we have easy access to all kinds of technology products, which we test, write about, absorb, and return to their manufacturers. But sometimes all this isn't enough, and we need products for the long haul. 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.
TkInter Tkinter is Python's de-facto standard GUI (Graphical User Interface) package. It is a thin object-oriented layer on top of Tcl/Tk. Tkinter is not the only GuiProgramming toolkit for Python. It is however the most commonly used one. CameronLaird calls the yearly decision to keep TkInter "one of the minor traditions of the Python world." The Tkinter wiki: 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. The latest version is 0.53.2 released December 9, 2006 pygsear-0.53.2.tgzpygsear-0.53.2.zip The old games distribution should still work with 0.53.2:
