Build applications in Python the anti textbook

About the Book

This is an FOSS introductory book which aims to teach Python3. The starting few chapters are based on theory which is quite necessary, the last three chapters are based on writing a todo list manager. In short, this book not only teaches you the syntax of Python, but also how to build products, after reading this book, you'd be comfortable writing the next tool you wish would have existed in Python!
