Summary It's no secret the world around you is becoming more connected, more configurable, more programmable, more computational. You can remain a passive participant, or you can learn to code. With Head First Learn to Code you'll learn how to think computationally and how to write code to make your computer, mobile device, or anything with a CPU do things for you. Using the Python programming language, you'll learn step by step the core concepts of programming as well as many fundamental topics from computer science, such as data structures, storage, abstraction, recursion, and modularity.
Contents Getting started : thinking computationally -- Know your value : simple values, variables, and types -- Decisive code : Booleans, decisions, and loops -- Providing some structure : lists and iteration -- Getting functional : functions and abstraction -- Putting some order in your data : sorting and nested iteration -- Putting it all together : text, strings, and heuristics -- Getting modular : modules, methods, classes and objects -- Beyond iteration and indices : recursion and dictionaries -- Persistence : saving and retrieving files -- You really should get out more : using web APIs -- Getting interactive : widgets, events and emergent behavior -- A trip to Objectville : object-oriented programming -- Appendix : The Top Ten Topics (we didn't cover) : leftovers.
