How to think like a computer scientist: learning with Python, 2nd edition.
An Introduction to Python , by Guido van Rossum (the creator of Python).
We will be using the Python programming language,
which is available for Linux, Windows, and Macintosh computers (among others).
It is available on the lab computers at EMA 302 (the undergraduate CS lab).
We will be using version 2.7.1,
which you can download for free online.
An Integrated Development Environment is a tool for browsing source code,
running programs, and debugging logical errors. You may use any that you like.
The Python distribution automatically installs a basic IDE called IDLE, which I like reasonably well. Another one I've used which provides some better code formatting and debugging tools is called Wing IDE, which you may use if you like. A special version called Wing 101 is available for free from https://wingware.com/products.
