The computer is an extremely versatile tool that can be used to quickly perform various activities. This also applies to tasks that usually take a lot of time, and at the same time are tiring and boring. Instead of comparing for many hours or entering data, it's better to program a computer that will perform such tasks in a few seconds. To achieve this, you do not have to be a professional programmer!

If you have no idea about programming, but you want to use the computer to automate simple, repetitive operations, you hold the right book in your hand. The basics of programming are presented here in a clear and understandable way, the individual actions are explained step by step, and the proposals of practical projects allow for thorough acquisition of the material and broadening the knowledge. Python was used for learning, because it is relatively simple, popular and still being developed. You'll quickly see how much time and effort you can save by automating tasks using short and easy programs!

In the book you will find, among others:

  • Basics of programming in Python
  • Description of the program flow control
  • Information about work on text data and files
  • News about working with CSV files and JSON data
  • Task schedules and description of the program startup time control
  • Possibilities to control the keyboard and mouse using GUI automation

Let your computer work!
