Your First Steps in Python

If you have Python installed on your system, or if you opened up an on-line version of Python, you are now ready to start learning the basics.

In this chapter, I've done my utmost best to teach you the basics of Python in an easy and natural way. Even if you have no prior programming experience, you should be able to get a good a start. If not, do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have. We'll take it slow, and before you know it you’ll have a solid base-level knowledge about:

  • strings
  • numbers
  • booleans
  • variables
  • loops
  • iterators

This introductory chapter will not dive into the nitty gritty details of these subjects, but instead touch the surface and introduce you to the basic concepts. Let's go!
