Free Online eBook – How to Think Like a Computer Scientist (Learning with Python 3)

Python again dominates the WPC#4 https://olimex.wordpress.com/2013/04/15/weekend-programming-challenge-issue-4-solutions/ so I guess it’s about time to start learning Python.

There are tons of resources on the web but this book took my attention: How to Think Like a Computer Scientist http://openbookproject.net/thinkcs/python/english3e/index.html

At least the Strings are explained very clean there http://openbookproject.net/thinkcs/python/english3e/strings.html so I would manage to solve WPC#4 if I have read this book before 🙂
