Beginning Python From Novice to Professional, Second Edition
Here it is—a shiny new edition of Beginning Python. If you count its predecessor, Practical Python, this is actually the third edition, and a book I’ve been involved with for the better part of a decade. During this time, Python has seen many interesting changes, and I’ve done my best to update my introduction to the language. At the moment, Python is facing perhaps its most marked transition in a very long time: the introduction of version 3.7, the features are clearly defined and working versions are available. One interesting challenge linked to this language revision is that it isn’t backward-compatible. It also changes the existing language, so that certain things that are true for Python 2.5 no longer hold.
