* You know what variables are and have an idea what a loop is.
* You are somewhat familiar with building an interface, even building a form in HTML or Access
* You have a basic understanding of object oriented programming (we will cover some of that)
Okay, so we will get started with this, and will NOT do “Hello World.”
Before getting started, you will need to know what you want to do with Python. Are you creating script for processing files (batch jobs)? Are you creating scripts to enhance your website? Are you planning on building desktop apps (you can). Are you planning on building Mobile Apps (you CAN)? Database apps? You certainly can. However, before downloading and installing anything, please do some planning and read this article.
You have just been convinced by your Linux embracing friends (or family) to eschew the world of Windows and Macs and dive into Linux. You become overwhelmed with the available software and become so excited until the dreaded day when you have a problem with your hard drive. As much as I like Linux, I […]
