It’s fun to learn with friends! In Let’s Talk Python you’ll meet Erik and Simon, two brothers who are just beginning their Python journey. Join them as they chat about the language, learn the basics, and build some cool programs. It's the perfect way for young programmers (and their parents) to get started.

Let's Talk Python is a unique Python beginners guide written especially for young people. There are no boring lessons or dull exercises. Instead, you'll team up with two brothers who are busy talking about Python programming and asking the same questions you are! As you follow along, you’ll learn from the brothers' mistakes, discover how to write programs with a team, and get a chance to create applications you can use in your daily life. All code in this book runs on Mac, Windows, Linux, and Raspberry Pi.

about the technology

Python is one of the best languages for new programmers! Its creators designed it to be easy to learn and easy to use. But Python isn’t just a language for beginners—it’s used for all sorts of things, from web apps to artificial intelligence! Open up this fun, friendly guide and you’ll see just how easy it is to get started with Python.

about the book

Let’s Talk Python listens in on the conversations between two aspiring Python programmers. The book’s dialogue helps young programmers understand complex concepts much more easily. Characters ask questions, make mistakes, and offer different solutions—just like in real life. Readers will develop fun and engaging Python applications, including a coffee shop app for taking orders and a LEGO minifigure exchange program.

Best of all, Let’s Talk Python dives deeper than other beginner books. Inside are important skills for any new software developer, such as how to plan an application, what to expect from users, and how to test code and check for errors. By the time they’re done reading, young learners will not only know how to write code, they’ll know how to think about problems like professional developers!
