From the Back Cover
Characterized by ease of use, richness of expression, and concise syntax, Python has remained a premier programming language for more than a decade, and is used by novices and professionals alike. In particular, its close relationship to Java™ makes the two languages, when used in combination, ideal for Web and distributed enterprise application development.
This tutorial begins with coverage of some of the basics of Python programming.
Using plenty of skill-building exercises and interactive programming sessions, the book will help those new to programming develop an understanding of concepts and practical techniques.
For experienced programmers, the book demonstrates Python's breadth of capabilities and shows the ways that Python interfaces with the Java APIs for professional application development.
