Learn Python With No Programming Experience: Why, How, and When to Use Functions

About the Book

Too many Python books are written as if the author is talking to another programmer.

Too many confusing programming terms. Jargon jumping out at you as if you're supposed to know what it means. As a result, you may find yourself glazing over the content and then just giving up. Then, on you go searching for something else - StackOverflow, Google, documentation...

 Hours spent on reading, courses, tutorials... and you're still struggling to understand the point of it all.

You're not alone. And it's NOT YOUR FAULT!

In fact, some of this stuff can make a learner feel... stupid. I should know - I've been there many, many times. That's not right and it's not fair to the person learning to code/program.

With this guide, you'll get a solid understanding so you can get back on track with your learning.

Here are some of the topics you'll find in this guide:

  • discover why functions are needed in the first place
  • help you grasp the concept of functions at a deep level
  • grasp the difference between arguments and parameters
  • learn to implement functions in a practical way
  • be confident with how big or small your functions should be
  • grasp the concepts of *args and **kwargs
  • and more!

If you've been learning Python, but are stuck on trying to implement functions this guide is for you.

If Python is your first programming language but you got stuck at functions, keep reading.

If you just want to brush up on your understanding of Python functions, you're in the right place.
