Reviews

"Learn Python Visually brings two very exciting threads together - using Python to code projects, and using Processing for making art. The book welcomes beginners by covering how to get started with the basics like shapes and color but extends the learning far by covering complex topics like object-orientation in an accessible fashion. I am excited to see what students, teachers, artists, anyone can make using this book."
-Saber Khan, Education Community Director, Processing Foundation


"Learn Python Visually might be one of the most creatively-minded, practical introductions to basic programming, presented in a rewarding environment, using a highly relevant language. . . . Its modern design is easy to follow and it finds a nice balance between being educational, and inspirational."
-Dr. Rer. Nat. Ralf Biedert, Principal Engineer, Tobii AB


"The sample programs are nicely selected and each deal with a different topic . . . [provides] the necessary detail, but still compact. I believe Learn Python Visually will be a rich source of inspiration."
-Alfred Abusomwan, Techs Blog
