Python Fundamentals: From Complete Beginner To Coding With AI: Featuring practical examples, coding challenges, and solutions

Andrew Campi

Welcome to Python Fundamentals! This book is designed to teach you everything you need to know about Python, presented in a straightforward manner with easy-to-understand examples and no fluff. It's the way I wish Python was taught to me when I first started learning.

Why This Book Was Written
I created this book to provide a comprehensive and beginner-friendly resource for learning Python. I believe that learning programming should be accessible to everyone, and I wanted to create a resource that cuts through the noise and focuses on the essential concepts and practical examples.

Book Style and Approach
Python Fundamentals is written in a clear and concise style, with a focus on practical examples and hands-on learning. Each chapter builds upon the previous one, gradually introducing new concepts and techniques. The book is suitable for beginners with no prior programming experience, as well as those who want to solidify their Python skills.

By The End of This Book ...
... you will have a solid foundation of Python, data structures, object-oriented programming, and API interactions. You will be comfortable enough to write your own program using artifical intelligence natural language processing and interactions via the OpenAI LLM API, which is a great achievement!
