--Derek Schaefer, Senior Finance Manager, Charles Schwab

--Melinda Sacks, Former Writer, Editor, San Jose Mercury News

From the Author

I spent one year writing The Self-Taught Programmer. It was an exciting and rewarding experience. I treated my book like a software project. After I finished writing it, I created a program to pick out all of the code examples from the book and execute them in Python to make sure all 300+ examples worked properly. Then I wrote software to add line numbers and color to every code example. Finally, I had a group of 200 new programmers "beta read" the book to identify poorly explained concepts and look for any errors my program missed.  

Every paperback copy of The Self-Taught Programmer is printed in full-color. It is easier to read code when it is in color, so I was determined to print the paperback version in color instead of black and white.

I hope you learn as much reading my book as I did writing it. Best of luck with your programming!
