Tiny Python Projects is a gentle, amusing introduction to Python that will firm up several key concepts while occasionally making you snicker.

Amanda Debler, Schaeffler Technologies
A long journey is really a lot of little steps. The same is true when you're learning Python, so you may as well have some fun along the way! Written in a lighthearted style with entertaining exercises that build powerful skills, Tiny Python Projects takes you from amateur to Pythonista as you create 22 bitesize programs. Each tiny project teaches you a new programming concept, from the basics of lists and strings right through to regular expressions and randomness. Along the way you'll also discover how testing can make you a better programmer in any language.
