I love your books on regex...As a student from the Digital VLSI space, it is indeed useful now and definitely in the future. It's really well written and really easy to understand the examples — feedback on reddit

The book heavily leans on examples to present features of regular expressions one by one. It is recommended that you manually type each example and experiment with them.

You should have prior experience working with Python, should know concepts like string formats, string methods, list comprehension and so on.

Both standard re module and popular third party regex module is covered in this book.

Exercises are also included to test your understanding.

Visit https://github.com/learnbyexample/py_regular_expressions for code snippets and exercise files. The repo also has solutions for exercises.

This book is a short, introductory guide for the Python programming language. This book is well suited:

  • As a reference material for Python beginner workshops
  • If you have prior experience with another programming language
  • If you want a complement resource after reading a Python basics book, watching a video course, etc

Prerequisites: You should be already familiar with basic programming concepts. If you are new to programming, see my curated list of resources (https://learnbyexample.github.io/py_resources/) instead.

Exercises are included to test your understanding. Visit https://github.com/learnbyexample/100_page_python_intro for program files, markdown source and other details about the book.

Your Practice Python Projects book is really helping me to reinforce my knowledge and mastery of Python as I'm learning — feedback on twitter

Beginners who've finished a basic programming book or a course often wonder what they should do next. After solving exercises that test your understanding of syntax and common logical problems, working on projects is often recommended as the next step in the programming journey.

Working on projects that'll help you solve real world use cases would be ideal. You'll likely have enough incentive to push through difficulties instead of abandoning the project. Sometimes though, you just don't know what to work on. Or, you have ideas, but not sure how to implement them, how to break down the project into manageable parts, etc. In such cases, a learning resource focused on projects can help.

This book presents five beginner to intermediate level projects inspired by real world use cases:

  1. Enhance your CLI experience with a custom Python calculator
  2. Analyzing poll data from a Reddit comment thread
  3. Finding typos in plain text and Markdown files
  4. Creating a GUI for evaluating multiple choice questions
  5. Square Tic Tac Toe — creating a GUI game with AI

To test your understanding and to make it more interesting, you'll also be presented with exercises at the end of each project. Resources for further exploration are also mentioned throughout the book.

Visit https://github.com/learnbyexample/practice_python_projects for programs and related example files presented in this book.
