Learn Python Visually (No Starch Press)
Wednesday, 26 May 2021

This beginners book introduces non-programmers to the fundamentals of computer coding within a visual, arts-focused context. Tristan Bunn teaches core coding concepts using Python's Processing.py, an open-source graphical development environment. The book shows how to produce and manipulate colorful drawings, shapes and patterns as Bunn walks the reader through a series of easy-to-follow graphical coding projects that grow increasingly complex. You’ll go from drawing with code to animating a bouncing DVD screensaver and practicing data-visualization techniques.
