Python full tutorial

Posted 25 September 2015 - 03:00 AM

Hello. In advance I do apologize if this is posted in the wrong section. What are the best full tutorials and books ect for learning python? I'm a very hands on person and most books really do just don't do me any good without examples if you know what I mean. I'm basically looking for full tutorials from syntax to everything python has to offer. Pretty much the best way to learn the language. Thank you in advance.

learn Python the hard way is good.

I have changed your topic title. Do not use meaningless titles like "Python help." and "Question about Python".

If you are looking for "everything python has to offer" then Learning Python, Lutz, does this. It is a substantial tome though! Not my favourite book, but it is thorough.

FYI that book is available in HTML for free at http://learnpythonthehardway.org/book/ in html (but of course if you find it useful consider paying/donating to the author).

I appreciate it. Will take a look at it, going to need the most recourses I can get!

There's a pinned thread at the top of this page called Python Helpful Resources , maybe you should start with that...

I suppose I would say The Quick Python Book, but I don't consider it a beginners book, nor is it thorough, so I didn't mention it.

What's with the grilling? I'll assume that you just value my opinion.

I don't have a favourite beginners book, else I would have mentioned it. The only introductory book I read was "Learning Python" that I mentioned. I don't usually suggest or recommend it though, because I don't consider it suitable for an absolute beginner. In my opinion, it requires previous programming experience. It is not an easy read and now has 1600 pages!

Python Programming for the Absolute Beginner has lots of good reviews, although not all are entirely positive. I'd go for this or LPTHW.

(I didn't actually start learning Python in a conventional or recommended way, I picked it up while playing with Sublime Text plug-ins.)

Sorry if i grilled you...yes i def value your opinion...i started reading the book you mentioned. It really is detailed.a lot of trivia regarding python that i suppose is not too crucial to actual language development...but its good to know where you coming from. Makes nice comparrison to other languages. On about page 30 now and its moving onto actual language...will see if i can grasp it.

One thing to bear in mind is that most programmers are not very familiar with available introductory programming books for most languages. In fact, most programmers will know, at most, of one or beginner-oriented books on the first and maybe the second language that they learned. After that, you stop looking at beginner-oriented books, because you're no longer a beginner.

That being said, I can also recommend Learn Python the Hard Way. As far as I can tell, it's about the best thing going for beginner programmers looking to learn python. Allen Downey's "Think Python" also looks quite good, and is also available as a free on-line read.
