Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Paul Barry is formally educated and trained in Computer Science and holds a Masters Degree in Computing Science. He has been programming professionally, on and off, for close to 25 years. Paul already has two textbooks to his name, and is also a Contributing Editor to Linux Journal magazine. His day job is with the Institute of Technology, Carlow in Ireland where he has spent over a decade preparing Ireland's next generation of computing folk to be productive in the workforce. His role as a third level educator affords him the opportunity to explore, learn and teach the very latest programming technologies and practices, which is something that he enjoys even though he knows this makes him a bonafide "geek". Paul lives just outside the town of Carlow in Ireland with his wife, two sons, daughter, dog and cat. There's a bunch of computers and a growing collection of music instruments in the house, too (and like a lot of the Head First family, Paul is a struggling guitarist trapped inside a geek's body). He has so far resisted any suggestion that the family acquire a hamster ... or a set of drums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to pick up
By TYanna Morrison on March 7, 2022
Finished the first chapter today. I went to college for computer science and they shoved C++ down our throats. Always wanted to learn python - although I do not use python in my day job I wanted to learn it , but not in a very school book driven way. This def meets that mark. Very interactive programs and I’m flowing through it with already knowing C++ abs JavaScript

So how can the book refer to colours coded code and all the code and pictures be black and white. And i know for a fact that there is meant to be colour because i have just got the pdf version and all pictures and code has colour. Not good at all.
