A short introduction to programming – Python edition: A step-by-step tutorial on Python programming, for absolute beginners

You want to learn how to code. That’s great! So, why read this book if you are new to programming? There are plenty of books about programming, but most of them focus on a specific programming language only, or assume previous experience as a developer. This makes it hard to find a good book to start your self-study, especially if you are a beginner and you are not yet 100% sure what your programming language of choice will be. Just for that purpose, we created the “A short introduction to programming” series, meant to teach you the basic coding concepts all programming languages share. Every edition of this series follows the same simple step-by-step learning-method, but uses a different programming language for demonstration purposes. This didactic concept allows you to quickly learn the basics of coding, using a wide range of different programming languages. Also, the consistent nature of the different editions allows you to quickly compare languages, or to easily change the focus of your self-study to a different language. It’s simply a great place to start when you are new to coding! Who are we?This book is published by Audio Dev Academy, an exciting online environment for like-minded programmers, musicians and audio engineers who want to learn how to code audio plug-ins and virtual instruments - to be launched in 2019. In preparation for the launch, Audio Dev Academy will publish a series of books about programming in general, and about the inner workings of audio plug-ins and virtual instruments. If you want to know more about our plans for the future, find us on Facebook, visit our website at www.audiodev.io, or email us directly at info@audiodev.io. Happy coding!
