    Python Programming

    Hey fellas,



    Since I don't have much to do at work lately I decided to pick up a new language and always wanted to learn python, so I was wondering if anybody here had a good book for learning python.


    Ive done some coding but it's fairly limited lol.


    Any help would be much appreciated!

  2. Thanks (3): Devious, Pajo, sanka

    I'd like to know also. Couldn't apply for a job offer, since i didn't know the language And had all other characteristics to apply. I talked to the company manager to give me a week or two time to learn it, he declined, he said they need the man right away. Cunt.

    Well Pajo as of now I've been reading through a book "Python Programming for the Absolute Beginner" and its okay but kinda meh. There is also a free book link here: http://getpython3.com/diveintopython3/

    But I don't know how great it is. I was just asking here incase someone had a great experience with a book and was willing to recommend it.

    Have always had an addiction for prog. languages, had a little journey in each one of them, but never completed any, I get bored too early, actually specially when I find things are becoming easier.. lame.

    It's easy to get the basics in python.... and then at some point it just becomes a question of knowing all the (many) modules that can be imported...

    Yeah but python is piss easy.


    Hello world:

    print "Hello world"



    Read in from a file, split each line by commas:

    myfile = open('input.csv')

    for line in myfile:
    tokens = line.split(',')




    If your input file is something like

    entry1,entry2,entry3

    then tokens[0] is entry1, tokens[1] is entry2, tokens[2] is entry3


    have fun doing that in C, C++, or Java.



    x= ['hi', 3, 16, 'fuck']

    for it in x:
    print it



    no type def problems or anything like that. Just smooth...

    Again, good luck with that in C++ or something similar.

    edit; some indentation issues.. python is white space separated so be aware of that

    As far as I know Python was developed by a linguist rather than a coder so such syntaxis makes sense.

    Was it? I dont know. But there's an AWFUL lot of quite heavy going C/C++ behind the scenes which actually makes it all work.

    Well, at work i mostly use microsoft based technologies, basically c#. I've been coding in Java and c++ as well, but nothing can beat c# imo.

    It depends what your metric is.

    for going from idea to working program quickly, python is the best. No argument.

    What about stability? Other systems integration?

    Python, even c++ for that matter is ok for small systems that don't work with other ones, maybe some SQL and that's about it. Nothing can beat C# in stability, integration with other systems, already made libraries, and so on, and so on...

    And still not stable as c#, even tho just a bit faster. About the integration issue, c# and java are about the same. Java has some problems integrating with microsoft technologies and MSSQL, while c# has problems with oracle and apache servers. All is fixed tho, lot's of scripts and plugins, as well as libraries are provided for work. I'd rate them just about the same, c# slightly higher.

    Nope, turns out it's just a rumor. Guido Van Rossum is the man.

    i misunderstood you . i meant code execution platforms .
    in Java , write once , execute anywhere . it's an interpreted language not compiled like C# .

    about the integration with other services and applications , there is millions of packages to use , a large active community of different platforms and devices .

    imho Java is the best language to learn if you want to earn money and fuck bitches .

    C# is lower than java (closer to the machine) , perfect for microsoft systems .

    Well, developing c# based applications can earn you lots of money too WinForms, WebForms, or in newer age MVC applications are very appreciated. Especially complex ones that need stability and good debugging options/tests
