This is an open source introductory textbook to learn practical programming skills in the Python language.

The textbook is meant as a first programming course and is tightly aligned with the University of Otago introductory programming course called Practical Programming (http://www.cs.otago.ac.nz/student/papers.php?name=COMP150).

This textbook is a modified version of "How to Think Like a Computer Scientist: Learning with Python 2nd Edition", by Jeffrey Elkner, Allen B. Downey and Chris Meyers (http://www.openbookproject.net/thinkcs/python/english2e/).

We welcome contributions or suggestions of any sort.
