Learn Python in One Hour: Programming by Example 978-1-61599-239-3
You're already a smart person, you don't need a 1000+ page book to get you started on the web's fastest growing
programming platform. Instead, Learn Python in One Hour delivers on the promise of code literacy while saving
your most precious commodity - time itself. Volkman's innovative programming-by-example approach means you focus
on usage, not mindless detail. Based on the author's sold-out live seminars, you'll see Python's flexible coding
technique in action as we refactor from script to procedural to object-oriented during actual problem solving.

In a twelve-lesson progression, you'll be exposed to this and more:
  • Basic file input and output operations, incuding exceptions

  • Using functions to compute and return  multiple values

  • Basic elements of a class definition and how to call methods

  • Lists, dictionaries, sets, and other collections

  • Iteration through collections, files, sorted sets

  • Searching strings with regular expressions (regex)

  • Client and server programs for REST methods

  • Using threads in Python for multiple tasks

  • CGI-BIN programming for simple HTML Forms processing

  • Six most common Python pitfalls

Take the One Hour challenge and see if you too can pick up 90% of syntax and semantics in less time than you probably spend commuting each day.


About the Author
Victor R. Volkman graduated cum laude from Michigan Technological University with a BS in Computer Science in 1986.
Since then, he has written for numerous publications, including The C Gazette, C++ Users Journal, Windows Developers Journal,
and many others. He has taught college-level programming courses at Washtenaw Community College and has served on its
Computer Information Science (CIS) Faculty Advisory Board for more than a decade. Volkman says Python helped him
"rediscover the joy of programming again."
