Today, anyone in a scientific or technical discipline needs programming skills. Python is an ideal first programming language, andIntroduction to Programming in Pythonis the best guide to learning it.Princeton University’s Robert Sedgewick, Kevin Wayne, and Robert Dondero have crafted an accessible, interdisciplinary introduction to programming in Python that emphasizes important and engaging applications, not toy problems. The authors supply the tools needed for students to learn that programming is a natural, satisfying, and creative experience.This example-driven guide focuses on Python’s most useful features and brings programming to life for every student in the sciences, engineering, and computer science.Coverage includesBasic elements of programming: variables, assignment statements, built-in data types, conditionals, loops, arrays, and I/O, including graphics and soundFunctions, modules, and libraries: organizing programs into components that can be independently debugged, maintained, and reusedObject-oriented programming and data abstraction: objects, modularity, encapsulation, and moreAlgorithms and data structures: sort/search algorithms, stacks, queues, and symbol tablesExamples from applied math, physics, chemistry, biology, and computer science—all compatible with Python 2 and 3Drawing on their extensive classroom experience, the authors provide Q&As, exercises, and opportunities for creative practice throughout. An extensive amount of supplementary information is available at With source code, I/O libraries, solutions to selected exercises, and much more, this companion website empowers people to use their own computers to teach and learn the material.

Students are introduced to core programming concepts like data structures, conditionals, loops, variables, and functions. This course includes an overview of the various tools available for writing and running Python, and gets students coding quickly. In the first part, you will learn about Python programming including data types, control structures (if-else, for-loop, while) and basic algorithms, file operations, code-reuse (function, class, module), and program debugging.
