Python Flash Cards

Learn Python one card at a time



PythonFlashCards_boxfront.pngSan Francisco, CA (March 26, 2019)—And now for something completely different: a set of flash cards that teaches the basics of Python programming.


The Python Flash Cards ($27.95, 101 color cards, January 2019) from the author of the world-wide best-seller Python Crash Course (over 500k sold), distill essential Python programming knowledge into 101 laminated instructional cards. This boxed set of color-coded cards focuses on core concepts and skills essential to developing basic proficiency in Python. Concept cards cover general programming topics like operating systems, text editors, and planning projects. Syntax cards focus on Python specifics such as data types and structures, functions and methods, and program flow.


"The cards are designed to work in a variety of ways and match how the reader is learning," said author Eric Matthes, who has over 20 years of teaching experience with at-risk students. "I've spent my life thinking about what works for students and what doesn't work and took that mindset when designing the Python Flash Cards."


Great for digging into specific topics, the Python Flash Cards are also perfect for:


    After-school programs and school clubs

    Classroom use

    Tutoring organizations

    Exam prep

    Parents teaching their kids how to code

    Professional training

    Individualized instruction and reference


The Python Flash Cards offer an alternative method for learning code that breaks complex topics into digestible bits. Available in fine bookstores everywhere.
