New Edition! The goal of this book is to provide an Informatics-oriented introduction to programming. The primary difference between a computer science approach and the Informatics approach taken in this book is a greater focus on using Python to solve data analysis problems common in the world of Informatics. The Python 2 version of the book is still available. There are multiple translations of the Python 2 book - the Python 3 version of the book has not been translated.
Updated to use Python 3, the book is now available in a variety of formats:
The sample code and data files for the book is here: Code Samples.
Chapters 2-10 are heavily adapted from the open book titled: "Think Python: How to Think like a Computer Scientist" by Allen B. Downey and Jeff Elkner.
