In Python

About the Book

Welcome to an intense session during which you will learn Python. This book will be your friend for the next 100 days to help you along the journey of learning the fundamentals of Computer Science and how to program them in Python. 

This book will provide you step by step focused daily theory and practice to help you master: 

1. programming foundation in Python;

2. main algorithms concepts;

3. popular data structures that you will encounter often in your life as a programmer;

4. design patterns that will help you in writing marvelous code. 

Why this Book

Sure enough plenty of books have been written on Python and the official documentation is - and always will - remain the source of knowledge. A go-to for doubts. 

However, this book has been specifically designed to walk you through - step by step - not only Python syntax but also fundamental of computer science that will make you a well-rounded programmer. 

Who This Book is Meant For

If you are new to programming - in general - this book is right for you. Indeed it walks through the core concept of programming as well as detailing relative Python implementations.
