No Starch Press recently sent me a book called Python Playground: Geeky Projects for the Curious Programmer by Mahesh Venkitachalam to review. I don’t normally get books from that publisher so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the book is quite good. But I won’t provide any spoilers here as we have a quick review to do!
- Why I picked it up: I got it for free, but the description of the book made me want to get it too.
- Why I finished it: It’s very well written and the projects are definitely geeky and fun.
- I’d give it to: A programmer who is also a math nerd or who just wants ideas for a new, fun project.
