slither into python book cover

Slither into Python is an introduction to Python for complete beginners. No prior programming experience or computer science background is necessary. Unlike any other Python resources I have found (not that they're not out there), they don't explain important computer science concepts such as memory or "how computers work". In this book I will cover the fundamentals of the Python language and also introduce these important concepts.

Put simply, coding or computer programming is about making computers do what you want, Computer Science is about how computers do it. Each go hand-in-hand, help you learn faster and improve your overall understanding of a language! This book aims to do exactly that through Python.

"I'm reading 1.2, and I can already say I love how easy it is to understand so far. It's a lot more comprehensive than other sites I've looked at, which is great for a beginner like me."

"I've only just read through a couple of pages but this is hands down one of the cleanest introductions I've come accross so far. Massive shout-out to you for putting in online for free!"
