Download Classic Computer Science Problems in Python 1st Edition Pdf Book Description:
Thank you for purchasing Classic Computer Science Problems in Python. Python is one of the most popular programming languages in the world, and people become Python programmers from a variety of backgrounds. Some have a formal computer science education. Others learn Python as a hobby. Still others use Python in a professional setting, but their primary job is not to be a software developer. The problems in this intermediate book will help seasoned programmers refresh themselves on ideas from their CS education while learning some advanced features of the language. Self-taught programmers will accelerate their CS education by learning classic problems in the language of their choice: Python. This book covers such a diversity of problem solving techniques that there is truly something for everyone. This book is not an introduction to Python. There are numerous excellent books from Manning and other publishers in that vein.1 Instead, this book assumes that you are already an intermediate or advanced Python programmer. Although this book requires Python 3.7, mastery of every facet of the latest version of Python is not assumed. In fact, the book’s content was created with the assumption that it would serve as learning material to help readers achieve such mastery. On the other hand, this book is not appropriate for readers completely new to Python.
The figure on the cover of Classic Computer Science Problems in Python is captioned “Habit of a Bonza or Priest in China.” The illustration is taken from Thomas Jefferys’ A Collection of the Dresses of Different Nations, Ancient and Modern (four volumes), London, published between 1757 and 1772. The title page states that these are hand colored copperplate engravings, heightened with gum arabic. Thomas Jefferys (1719–1771) was called “Geographer to King George III.” He was an English cartographer who was the leading map supplier of his day. He engraved and printed maps for government and other official bodies and produced a wide range of commercial maps and atlases, especially of North America. His work as a map maker sparked an interest in local dress customs of the lands he surveyed and mapped, which are brilliantly displayed in this collection. Fascination with faraway lands and travel for pleasure were relatively new phenomena in the late eighteenth century, and collections such as this one were popular, introducing both the tourist as well as the armchair traveler to the inhabitants of other countries. The diversity of the drawings in Jefferys’ volumes speaks vividly of the uniqueness and individuality of the world’s nations some 200 years ago. Dress codes have changed since then, and the diversity by region and country, so rich at the time, has faded away. It’s now often hard to tell the inhabitants of one continent from another. Perhaps, trying to view it optimistically, we’ve traded a cultural and visual diversity for a more varied personal life or a more varied and interesting intellectual and technical life. At a time when it’s difficult to tell one computer book from another, Manning celebrates the inventiveness and initiative of the computer business with book covers based on the rich diversity of regional life of two centuries ago, brought back to life by Jefferys’ pictures.
