About the Book

About the book

pip install python is meant for those who want to start moving their first steps with Python and programming in general.

Hence, you will learn the basics of python and the foundation of programming, without unneeded fluff. 

This book is broken down into 10 core Chapters:

  1. Basic Types: All you need to know about type support in Python. Strings, numeric types, plus...some more!
  2. Statements: Oh dear, where do we start? Statements! Let’s start figuring out how to organize your code and what support Python gives you to have your code nicely and crisply organized!
  3. Variables: The recipe of our Py-thon! Let’s put all our ingredients in!
  4. PythonObjects: How many times you had to separate ingredients in different bowls, to assemble the after? Let’s figure this out!
  5. Polymorphism: Which “Py” do we want today? Learn the differences between assembling the “Py” and getting a “Py” in different flavors!
  6. Conditionals and flows: Describing the steps of your recipe! Let’s bake it!
  7. Loops: More than a single “Py”? I’ve got you covered!
  8. Files: Fridge? Freezer? Learn some basic steps to store your Py” and eat it too.
  9. Error handling: “Py” on a fire? Learn how to handle it!
  10. Documentation: The cook-book. Learn how to write one. 

About pricing

  • It works as a very first step into Python programming, thus specifically aimed at first-time programmers. Nonetheless, it embraces all the main concepts needed to really understand the code you will write.
  • Writing a book takes a lot of work, months if not years, but let's do things right. Hence, I decided to keep the minimum price low (the cost of a nice coffee). So that also students can easily afford it for a reference guide.

If you enjoy my books and you want to support my writing, you have several options:

  • Leanpub pricing strategy, so you can really pick any price you want, appreciate your support! 
  • go a step further in your knowledge and skills with Code Reviews 101 or any other of my writings.

Meanwhile, hope you will enjoy!
