Who Should Read This Book

This book is for anyone interested in computer programming, whether that’s a child or an adult coming to programming for the first time. If you want to learn how to write your own software rather than just use the programs developed by others, Python for Kids is a great place to start.

In the following chapters, you’ll find information to help you install Python, start the Python shell and perform basic calculations, print text on the screen and create lists, and perform simple control flow operations using if statements and for loops (and learn what if statements and for loops are!). You’ll learn how to reuse code with functions, the basics of classes and objects, and descriptions of some of the many built-in Python functions and modules.
