Hello!

New (or nearly new) programmers will learn most of what they need to know to start using Python immediately.

About the book

Programmers love Python because it's fast and efficient. Shouldn't learning Python be just the same? Hello! Python starts quickly and simply, with a line of Python code. You'll learn the basics the right way—by writing your own programs. Along the way, you'll get a gentle introduction to more advanced concepts and new programming styles.
