Tony Gaddis


In Starting Out with Python®, 5th Edition, Tony Gaddis' accessible coverage introduces you to the basics of programming in a high-level language. Python, an easy-to-learn and increasingly popular object-oriented language, allows you to become comfortable with the fundamentals of programming without the troublesome syntax that can be challenging for novices. With the knowledge acquired using Python, you'll gain confidence in your skills and learn to recognize the logic behind developing high-quality programs. Starting Out with Python discusses control structures, functions, and lists before classes.

As with all Gaddis texts, clear and easy-to-read code listings, concise and practical real-world examples, focused explanations, and an abundance of exercises appear in every chapter. Updates to the 5th Edition include a new chapter on database programming, and new coverage of GUI programming, string processing and formatting, and turtle graphics topics.
