Hear why Mary Poppendieck, Francesco Cirillo and other industry experts think you should have a copy in your technical library.

 2. “Hello, World” from Around the Programming World: In honor of the Hour of Code week, InformIT’s Dustin Sullivan compiles examples of everyone's favorite first program in any programming language, "Hello, World." Check out his latest blog post for examples from a number of programming and scripting languages.

3. Ask a Python Expert: In Part 1 of a seven-part series, Jesse Smith shows how to build on Python OO concepts by taking them to the Web using Python and the Pyramid Framework for building Python-based web applications. Learn how to get started with Pyramid and create your first project.
