SUN, 01 MAY 2011

Learning a new programming language may not always be easy.  There are so many aspect to look at in a programming language, that it may take some time before you are able to do what you want with it.  Fortunately, if you wanted to learn Python, there are now two good and free resources to get you started quickly on your journey : Full Circle Magazine's Program In Python volume 1 and Program In Python volume 2.

Those two eBooks contains reprint of all the first sixteen Program In Python articles published in the monthly Full Circle magazine.

Those articles help you starts learning Python by using real coding example.  While it starts with a usual "Hello World" program, it quickly goes into real applications, like a cook book application or a small game (using pygame).  Since the series as been running for a long time, Python 2 is used, but the final article discuss the difference between Python 2 and Python 3.

If you want to have each new articles as it gets published, you should read the Full Circe magazine.  Otherwise, wait for the next Program In Python special editions.
