Though Python takes its name from the comical British television series Monty Python's Flying Circus, the coding language is seriously powerful. Guido van Rossum, the programmer who wrote Python, was motivated to create a coding language that is intuitive and easy to understand. This book traces how van Rossum achieved his goal and how both novice programmers and experts use Python to create apps like Instagram and Pinterest and to achieve other objectives.
