Python is a fresh programming language for me. I was interested to obtain acquainted with its designs and features. I recommend this book to anyone interested in programming!
What a bundle! These four books cover everything you need to know with respect to coding with Python, and I liked how the material was broken up into each book to create it easier to absorb and not obtain overwhelmed. My favourite thing about the books was the sheer number of sample code examples provided, and I also liked the use of "Bad Examples" and "Good Examples" to support illustrate a point. I felt like I was being guided step-by-step through the process of using Python, which was excellent for a beginner like me. Would highly recommend this bundle - amazing value for 4 books.
These cover Python 2.7. Python 3.x has syntax differences that will create it difficult for a beginner to follow the examples in these books. It is not advisable for a beginner to learn the older ver unless they will eventually be modifying existing code which was written in that older ver
Everybody should read this ever, an expression of guidance for fresh students is that you should experience the book two or three times to present signs of improvement comprehension of the subject. This might enable you to change from a fledgling to master. The basic perusing will enable you to frame an establishment, which can be set by a moment reading.With that stated, it is significant to specify that this book requires no past info of PC programming. In the happening that you have had some introduction to utilizing PCs and have a fundamental know-how of the peripherals and I/O gadgets connected to the PC like console, mouse and screen, you are prepared to obtain started.I inside and out endorse it...

Everyone should read this book. Not just to learn programming but to learn the deep function of computer. This book is knowledgeable and great. It is necessary for us to use this book as a tutorial to maintain our computer system and make primary programming and learit fast. This activity is totally amazing. Everyone may feel happier if they successfully launched a program and fuctioned it to their specific ways. I feel excited to continie reading this bundle of books and learn more about the topic.
This is a decent book..The book covers programming dialects that are exceptionally normal and prevalently utilized as a part of the show enterprises. This is an extremely pleasant tutorial anyway I don't trust that you can explore that fast in only 2 hours without past essential info base on understanding. I have programming foundation of the considerable number of dialects in this book I explore this tutorial altogether easy to understand..I must recommened it.
Everyone should read this ever, a statement of direction for fresh understudies is that you should encounter the book a few times to tip at change appreciation of the subject. This may empower you to transform from a juvenile to ace. The essential scrutinizing will empower you to outline a foundation, which can be set by a min reading.With that expressed, it is large to indicate that this book requires no past data of PC programming
The book covers programming languages that are highly common and popularly used in today’s industries. This is a really nice tutorial however I don’t believe that you can learn that quick in just 2 hours without previous primary knowledge base on experience. I have programming background of all the languages in this book that I search this tutorial significantly simple to understand. This is a nice refresher book for me.
The info provided herein is stated to be truthful and consistent, in that any liability, in terms of inattention or otherwise, by any usage or abuse of any policies, processes, or directions contained within is the solitary and utter responsibility of the recipient reader. As someone with no prior programming experience, this book was a delightful first foray into the programming world.
What I do really like in this set of books is its multiplicity of choices of programming languages, in one word, all in one! There is no need a deep studying of programming, I just need to obtain acquainted with some of them for my work needs. And what I like the most is that all I need is in 1 set, and can be found in a minute. Of course, this is amazing set intended for beginners.
tl;dr: buy this book if you're interested in the underlying principles of low-level programming. If you just wish to learn some C and assembly, there are plenty of free guides online. The book is probably too terse for absolute novice programmers but is a delight for those with some experience who seek to learn primary concepts of low-level programming while systematizing their gut feelings of programming patterns and amazing practices into a coherent ere are books on programming that are best used as references, standing on one's desk and waiting for its owner to forget a name of a handy function. Then there are books that seek to land their readers a job by providing the minimal knowledge needed to pass a programming iterview and do some productive programming, learning the missing pieces later in the field. And then there are books that outline the underlying principles on which programming is built. The show book is of the latter at isn't to say the book can't be used to land a job. The presented examples and subjects are not merely for academic pondering but practical enough for a reader to be able to apply the acquired knowledge in the field. However, if one just wants to begin writing assembly and C, this book is probably an overkill. It doesn't keep one's hand and requires much more effort from the reader than important to begin producing working code, so if one's goal is to be able to read and write some C, online guides would probably be a better put to start.Who is this book for, then? Well, one of its major focus is on amazing practices, so if one is somewhat experienced in programming, the book can support to solidify the intuitive understanding of how to write. The other focus is on the underlying principles of low-level programming: a lot of connections to other branches of computer science are provided, putting low-level programming into a broader perspective, which results in better programs. For example, one doesn't exactly need to know about finite-state machines, but structuring an assembly program to resemble this concept helps significantly to produce listings that are simple to read and debug. Exposure to other models of computation doesn't have any immediate benefits, but if one familiarize themselves with Forth (an interpreter of which the book suggests to write), they are bound to use some small tricks inspired by it from time to time. How does knowing about parsing of formal languages support with low-level programming if one doesn't expect to write compilers? Well, it makes compiler messages more intuitive. And so on; I suggest that you look at the table of contents, available freely by clicking on the book cover, and observe the sheer breadth of the covered material.Of course, the book isn't limited to things that are only marginally connected to low-level programming. The programming itself is described definitively, with a lot of helpful examples, assignments, and useful asides which warn about necessary caveats. I was sold the moment I saw a warning about a names of sections in assembly not being case-insensitive, because first, I've once spent an evening fighting with a mysterious segfault because of this, and second, I haven't seen a related warning in any other resources. The book is good; however, I still believe that its greatest strength is in acquainting readers with indirectly similar concepts, and reading it solely for the sake of learning how to write C isn't practical as there are a lot of easily googlable free resources providing the means to acquire this skill.With all that said, I still believe that even though exposure to a lot of various subjects indirectly connected to low-level programming makes one a better programmer, beginners would be overwhelmed by the amount of content they have to absorb in addition to learning the primary mmary:+ Breadth+ Depth+ Interesting examples and assignments+ Caveats+ Instructions for tooling (often discarded in other books)- The book is quite terse (the consequence of being deep and broad)- The language in which the book is written is sometimes weird due to the Russian origin (for example, 'loop' is 'цикл' in Russian which is incorrectly translated as 'cycle' in some places, but 'loop' isn't even nearly the same as 'cycle'')DISCLOSURE: I'm personally acquainted with the author and have read the book before it went to print. However, I'm not currently one of his students and so will not keep amazing grades for this review.
Very well written book on Intel 64 architecture and programming using both Assembly language and C. Clear instructions, numerous code samples compilable from the first test and a lot of assignment forcing the reader to apply his newly acquired knowledge to writing useful and quite complicated code from scratch. The chapters on using C and Assembly in ensemble are especially valuable. There are a lot of amazing books about C but this one is the best I've seen so far on Assembly and its productive use with C.
Absolutely fantastic, a unbelievable coverage of low level programming with C and x64, it's hard to search a decent guide these days that covers a working/modern ver of assembly so this was a breath of new air. Kudos to the author.
Detailed and broad in scope and coverage. However where is the editor? the author is not a native english speaker and it shows! There’s a lot of grammatical errors that are common among slavic speakers (such as leaving out articles like ‘a’ or ‘the’).Great book, but the editor was either lazy or asleep!
No question the author knows this stuff, however whether he's successful in explaining it, it's a various question. Some subjects are properly covered and well explained, others (like memory segments and global desc table) are skimmed and feel rushed. Lack of samples and clarity. The content is quite poorly organized as well.I also felt it could have explained the differences between Linux, OSX and Windows, and at least covered a bit of ARM given its relevance these days.
This book is about assembly language, mostly about C, and how to create them work together. What is written is written well, especially the first (assembly) part is good. It is truly engaging though I think the pace is too quick and the final issue (writing Forth interpreter) adds more noise than signal to overall content (just count it -- you are supposed to learn asm, low-level C, and Forth -- in my opinion it is too much) -- anyway, I immediately felt nostalgic about the times I wrote code in 6502 and 68K asm.Let me list all the drawbacks I noticed. The minor ones are the format of the book (taller, and narrower than usual) and persistently printing copyright message over the pages. I don't know where APress is heading with it but I see it again and I am really tired of this. What next -- "you wouldn't steal a car..." warning?The huge one starts with author's statement that there is no point in duplicating information about assembly language because everybody can check Intel spec. As the result you obtain as small information as possible in a book about assembly. This decision created me really mad -- I paid for the printed book just to be reminded about existence of the internet? Now I have to switch constantly between book and computer monitor -- yeah, fresh dimension of comfortable reading.But what really broke the straw was page 127 -- beginning of the C part. Author included just a small information about asm because there is one spec available ("Many books test to contain exhaustive info about instruction set. it gets outdated quite soon; moreover, it BLOATS the book unnecessarily.", upper case is from me)? Hear this -- there is entire C guide included, 140 pages long, even with programming style tips. It is probably because there is no other book about C on the planet, and K&R is about to be written yet. Yes, I am buying this reasoning, also included such rare gems as description of regular expressions and finite state machines. But asm... oh huge no-no, there is Intel spec already, every line of duplication is a crime ("There is no virtue in copying the instruction descriptions from the “original” put they appear in; it is much more mature to learn to work with the source.") Why a reader cannot work with the sources about regexes or grammars?As for wasting zone I was also not satisfied seeing questions supposed to support me learn -- I read books because I am curious, to learn more, so my mind is already set on asking. I think it is more valuable to provide info than to ask and ask (because I am already doing that). "What does instruction xor rdi, rdi do" -- is it really valuable? There are 423 questions in total and I think they are geared more to create this book a textbook (making life easier for lazy lecturer) than to truly support any self-taught is not the book is not useful, far from it, author relies solely on open-source tools, I have learned about Intel asm (and Forth), part 3 (C+asm) showed me fresh low-level details. But despite all those amazing things this book is too heavily ill-balanced to obtain a higher score. The second edition will be amazing with the second part completely removed, or really amazing with expanded part one at the expense of removing part two. Until then we have to live with the average.
Amazing book for intermediate to advanced programmers looking for a bottom up approach to how program execution occurs, teachers free-writing assembly all the method up to how to develop solid robust c code.
Are you searching for something amazing items for learning all the basics of python programming? If yes, then I would like to suggest this beginner’s guidebook to you without any hesitation. Likewise a beginner, I found this book so awesome and inside here I have found lots of useful lessons, guides, instruction, hints and tricks about this ough I had read few books on the same subject before but somehow I was not clear about this programming. Anyways, after getting & read this book entirely, I was able to learn all the basics of python programming like: python functions, various data types, variables, objects, classes, and much more. Overall, I found all these lessons so well organized and fruitfully described by the author. Don’t miss your possibility to read it entirely, if you ever obtain a possibility & if you have interest on it.
Book is well written and simple to follow. Unfortunately the example text is unreadable in the iOS Kindle app. Forced to read it on the Kindle application for Windows where it is readable.
Like in this book very much that, as mentioned in title, it's a practical book. Python is a fresh language for me and with this book learning is going quick and easy. Of course, it's more for beginners. Here you will search commands, functions and much more. Written amazing and is simple to understand, that is required in any teaching book.
Hello world...Brian Draper does a amazing job introducing the globe of Python. As a reader you become a student and follow Mr. Drapers well laid out manual. The book will create you accostumed to Python and I recommend that you use YouTube videos as well to increase your understanding. Amazing book
Designed for beginners. Covers benefits of the language, primary commands, statements, functions. Second part of the book gets more in depth, although. Talks about classes, inheritance, modules, tuples etc. Nice to have for reference if you just starting out or have to switch between several languages.
This book gives a amazing tour of the language, in an interesting way, by working through multiple video android game programs. Concepts are presented clearly and concisely and with a bit of humor. The exercises are challenging, but not impossible. This book won't turn you into a coding guru, but it teaches you the basics of how computer programs work. It was really helpful in getting know python. Easy to understand with increasing complexity.
The author is a huge expert in Python and I liked learning from him through this book. This book covers a lot of locations of Python programming and after reading this book I am much more comfortable with this language. This is an perfect book.
The examples are printed in a confusing format. The claim is that it is more readable but Java seems more clear to me. Low price and you obtain what you pay for. Reads OK on android device smartphone
Jason is clear without treating like a dummy and has a amazing web website for learning how to administer Linux servers ... which I have yet to take but is very informative on what he covers.
Amazing for Beginner and the examples and the concept are explained clearly and the chapters covers all the required functions. like it.
I have some programming background and bought this to obtain an introduction to python. Simple to read and follow. Very impressed. It's provided the fast intro that I was looking for and I'm hooked on the language now. Glad I bought it.
As an absolute beginner with coding and not even amazing with computers, this book was very helpful. It is very clearly written and covers subjects in short, clear sections. It also gives clear explanations of what could go wrong and why. That said, do not think any book alone is going to make a amazing programmer. Only much practice will do that. It helped me a lot to do all his examples myself then follow along with his instructions when I got stuck.
I am just a beginner at computer programming, and learning Java, really was quite a challenge for me! However, I eventually mastered it and my brother, who finds it easy, suggested using the python program. I was convinced that it would be far too difficult and I spent ages reading about it online, and reading other books. when browsing, I came across this and looked at the sample page. It seemed very clearly explained and detailed, so I downloaded it. I am so glad that I did as it was very clearly explained and has detailed instructions on not only how to use it, but also how to install it. The best method I can describe it, is too compare it to the series of books ' (insert computer tutorial here) for dummies' . as it takes a complicated computer program and makes it so simple, step by step with detailed images. Having said that, this book is so much more than a easy tutorial as he covers everything in min detail.
If you are a very beginner, this book will be great! If you already have some experience with python(my case) you'll miss 's a amazing asset for your knowledge, I recommend!
I am getting back into programming after about 15 years so I am a bit rusty to say the least. I know lots of folks in the networking and data center zone who use Python as their go to language when they need to prototype a program quickly. I wanted to learn Python for an upcoming project and was blown away by how clear this book is on getting you grounded on the basics of Python. It really is a very quick read. I went through the entire book and coded the examples in two days. The book was that good. Highly recommended.
This is a concise tutorial to beginning or furthering one's career as a software developer. Because it is short and to-the-point, it is simple to read and digest the well-thought-out points he wants to make. I have taken online courses from John before and found them very useful, because he distills the fresh material to the essentials, so that one does not waste time on non-essentials and learns quickly. Highly recommended!
John has a empowering insight on life and a clear path to how to improve yourself as a programmer and a person.He does a unbelievable job of seeing things as they are in the Software Dev field and gives a ton of value with this guide.If you are a software dev and are even hesitating about buying this book and reading it, just ask yourself one you wish to be successful at what you do? If the respond is yes, obtain the book.
I liked, previous John's book, and this one is much much better. I couldn't imagine where my career wold be if I had such an perfect book when I started my career, but in this method I will just check and fix all my mistakes during my developer career. Also this book will support me in my further developers life as all this advises and suggestions from the book are absolutely great. The book is simple to read and follow, and can be red whenever you wish and as a lot of time as you want, you will always search some amazing thing you can do with your life and career as software developer. Once more perfect job John. I couldn't even imagine what a amazing book will be your next book!
This book provides a wealth of info for Software Developers at any level. Having been a Developer for past 20 years, I still search this book very informative. I want there was a book like this when I started out my career. I am glad I purchased this book. I highly recommend this book to anyone regardless of their level of experience. Think of it as an investment on you career.
I/m an 85 year old semi retired physician still involved in some aspects of programming.I bought the book to review what John Sonmez had to say because I am occasionally asked for tip about medical programming.His book helped me organize that advice.
There is something unique about how John is book feels a lot like a conversation(A very long and in depth one). Where you obtain too pick an old mans brain.I will definitely tell mates that are interested in the software industry. Too buy this book. They will obtain a much better introduction too what they need too do and be successful in this line of might not agree with everything John says, but if you are a tinsy bit of begin minded at least he will challenge your ideas. Which in turn will create you think about them again and maybe refine them. Either method you obtain value out of the book.
Once again John Sonmez hit the nail right on the head for a software developer and career planning and advancement. This book covers lots of ground and is indeed a "Complete Guide" to a career as a developer. There are a lot of immediately actionable subjects for everyone, from those just starting in the field to seasoned professionals. A "must have" for every developer.
John has always been a top tier leader in the field of software development. This book is a culmination of that experience and is truly complete pack for developers of any skill e book is heavy and I have not read the whole book. A lot of won’t and that’s okay. There are sections that simply don’t apply to me and you may search the same. Again, that’s okay. Regardless of your experience level you will search some perfect nuggets. More importantly, It will be a reference for years to come for you as well as those that you mentor.
I've been following along with the writing of the book and it is every bit the comprehensive career tutorial the title says it is. This book is packed with the kind of info that you won't obtain in fluffy how to tutorials about your career, laying out a real-world applicable plan for you. I follow Easy Programmer and all of John's stuff, and this is just as amazing as the rest of it that I've enjoyed over the years.
This book will give you a look at software development from every angle. John is up front and straight to the point and doesn't pull any punches in this heavy book that covers everything from learning to be a software developer all the method to getting promotions and making sure you obtain the salary you deserve. The book also contains a lot of resources via links to John's other material so if you wish more info it is there for you.I have been doing software development for well over 10 years and I still found a lot of value in this book. I would recommend it to anyone at any point in their career, not just those just starting out.
#fireshannonsharpe His hateful anti-American attitude makes it impossible for this family to continue watching him and Fox Sports. What other country itbis globe would have given him the opportunity he has had. Uninstalling this application because it is represented by him.
Incredible! This app is only 8 megabytes at best and has all kinds of exclusive knowledge around a lot of programming languages. I congratulate you, Developer/s, for such an awesome and amazing effort. What I could suggest is for the app to have an advancement course for students that contains exercises and trivia. Thank you so much.
There are just easy programmes that i think created by the squad for time pass or in any work and now uploaded in their app. There is nothing like teaching programming, i just wasted my time by checking this app. Hope You will make an application to teach coding for fresh students.
Much content, presented in a not good way. Firstly, the usability is extremely lacking. After selecting a program program through the clunky UI, you are greeted by a built in code viewer that can only be used in portrait mode, meaning that you constantly have to swipe right and left to read anything. You can only view the code in another application by downloading the code as a text file, which triggers a very annoying full screen advertisement, and manually converting it to the required format. Apart from that, the code itself is not amazing either. Comments are lacking and some programs are written in an inefficient way.
Really love it, since the first version. Just a suggestion, adding find function would be better for some situation. So we can easily manage when we need. Anyway, one of the best application in market, and love it. Edit : I found it. Thanks for reply.
