Python Crash Course is the world’s best-selling guide to the Python programming language. This fast-paced, thorough introduction will have you writing programs, solving problems, and developing functioning applications in no time.

You’ll start by learning basic programming concepts, such as variables, lists, classes, and loops, and practice writing clean code with exercises for each topic. You’ll also learn how to make your programs interactive and test your code safely before adding it to a project. You’ll put your new knowledge into practice by creating a Space Invaders–inspired arcade game, building a set of data visualizations with Python’s handy libraries, and deploying a simple application online.

As you work through the book, you’ll learn how to:
  • Use powerful Python libraries and tools, including pytest, Pygame, Matplotlib, Plotly, and Django
  • Make increasingly complex 2D games that respond to keypresses and mouse clicks
  • Generate interactive data visualizations using a variety of datasets
