Introduction to Python book officially published

Obviously, not a lot of work has been done on this blog in the last few months. That's because I started on a new book just a few months after finishing the last one.

The new book (Learn Programming in Python with Cody Jackson) is available on Amazon now. While the first book this year was aimed at intermediate to advanced programmers, my newest book focuses on introducing Python and programming in general.

A key differentiater of this book is that the second half walks the reader through creating a real-world industrial control simulation. It not only includes a program that you can actually put to use, if desired, but it shows how to create a GUI for the program as well.

I'm not aware of any introductory books that go into this much detail, particularly ones that provide for text and graphical versions of the same program.

Secret Recipes of the Python Ninja

My new book is out now. I hope you like it.

I'm working on the 4th Edition of my intro to Python book (through the same publisher). I expect to start writing it around September, so it should be available next spring.

New book coming out

I see that I haven't been on this site since last August. However, I have a good excuse: I've been writing a new Python book for a publisher. The book is now going to the printers, so I have some time to get back here.

The book is titled Secrets of the Python Ninja, from Packt Publishing. The book will actually be available June 11, but pre-orders are available at Amazon right now. It has over 70 walk-throughs of a variety of Python features, both in the standard library and third party tools.

Available on Codementor

In case you hadn't noticed, there is a new addition to the left navbar. I am now available for programming assistance via Codementor. While I don't know everything, I'm continually learning and have no problem helping others to become more familiar with Python, or a lot of other tech-related things.

Take a look!
