Python 3 is an open-source programming language that can
be used to develop any application imaginable-business,
games, web, and more. We think it should be just as much
fun to learn Python as it is to use it. And we know that
fun learning gets better results. Hello! Python is a fast-
paced, entertaining introduction to Python, for readers
new to Python and programming. In this book, User
Friendly cartoon characters offer commentary and snide
side comments, as the book moves quickly from "hello
world" into practical techniques. Each one is illustrated
with a hands-on example. Along the way, readers will
learn to build several simple Python applications
including a multi-user adventure game and an MP3 player.
