Product description

Review

Python is a programming language, but it is also fun to play with. This book recognizes that.
--Geek Tech Stuff

Rather than being an introductory text, Vaughan's book pushes you in interesting directions for solving a diverse set of problems. Most of these "impractical" projects, while themselves being not so useless after all, will have parallels to real life projects.
--Greg Laden, Greg Laden's Blog

A must have second book for every developer that ever wants to learn Python as a language.
--Ian Mizer, Atlanta Python Programmers Group

About the Author

Lee Vaughan is a geologist with over 30 years' experience in the petroleum industry. As the Senior Technical Professional for Geological Modeling at a major international oil company, he was involved in the construction and review of computer models, the development, testing, and commercialization of software, and the training of geoscientists and engineers. An advocate for nonprogrammers who must use programming in their careers, he wrote Impractical Python Projects to help self-learners hone their skills with the Python language.
