Python Hunting throws beginners straight into the cool, creative side of things.
Python Hunting covers all the basics, such as classes, functions, loops and logic, but relates them all to the more fun aspects of programming.
When author Marley Adair first wanted to learn programming aged 8 he bought a few books on Python programming but they didn't teach the kind of programming he wanted to learn. He wanted to build games and animations, they taught him how to create print statements, calculators, data charts and a few rather dull text based games. So he taught himself how to build proper graphical games and then wrote the book he wished he could have bought. This is that book.
Marley is still a teenager but doesn't just write games now. He's fluent in several commonly used languages; he's written his own compilers, browsers, even his own languages. This is the book he wished he could have bought when he first began learning how to program. It's bang up to date and written by someone who's the same age as those he's writing for.
Working versions or screen shots of the games are on the website at www.python-hunting.com as well as contact details where you can ask questions or get help from the authors. We'd love to hear how you are getting on.
