Think Python: An Introduction to Software Design (Allen B. Downey)

A succinct introduction to software design using the Python programming language is provided in Python for Software Design. This book begins with the most fundamental ideas and gradually introduces additional information because it is meant for readers without any prior programming knowledge.

Recursion and object-oriented programming are two of the concepts that students find the most difficult. These concepts are broken down into a series of smaller steps and introduced over the course of multiple chapters. The programming process is the main topic, with a focus on debugging.

The book provides a variety of assignments, from quick examples to lengthy projects, giving students plenty of chance to apply each new idea. ThinkPython.com offers exercise solutions, code samples, and Swampy, a collection of Python programmes used in some of the exercises.
