Python book for Java Programmer

Recommended Posts

So, I just found out from my regional manager I'll be teaching Python not C++ this summer... I have avoided Python up until now mainly because I've had no use for it and I hate it's white space. When I say avoided I mean, I fucking hate it and all it's fan boys I've come across, no offence. I most proficient in Java and getting almost as good in C/C++.  So I was wondering if anyone would recommend a decent book for me to quickly grasp the concepts for next month. Also, I don't know why, I asked to teacher older kids around 18 but the Python class is some intro one for 10-12 years old so I don't expect to be going deep into the language at all.

You can learn most of the stuff you'll ever need to use in ~ 2 days, good luck :)


If you have to create the content yourself, be aware that there are many (often graphical) learning environments for kids you can use.

Also, you'd eventually have to learn python anyway. One can not survive in the world of CS without writing python code ;) You'll appreciate the language once you see its potential.
