Punch and Enbody write new text book on Python

Bill Punch and Richard Enbody, both are associate professors of computer science and engineering, have released a new textbook entitled "The Practice of Computing using Python" published by Addison Wesley, 2010.

The book is intended to teach problem solving within the context of CS1 to both majors and non-majors using Python as a vehicle. As such the authors cover general concepts like hardware, complexity, and software engineering as well as general concepts of programming using the Python language. In the end, if a student takes no other programming course than one such as this, they can be productive programmers who understand general principles of computation and can produce useful, meaningful results in their respective fields of study.
