Best-selling author Al Sweigart shows you how to easily build over 80 fun programs with minimal code and maximum creativity.

If youve mastered basic Python syntax and youre ready to start writing programs, youll find The Big Book of Small Python Projects both enlightening and fun. This collection of 81 Python projects will have you making digital art, games, animations, counting pro- grams, and more right away. Once you see how the code works, youll practice re-creating the programs and experiment by adding your own custom touches.

These simple, text-based programs are 256 lines of code or less. And whether its a vintage screensaver, a snail-racing game, a clickbait headline generator, or animated strands of DNA, each project is designed to be self-contained so you can easily share it online.

Youll create:
- Hangman, Blackjack, and other games to play against your friends or the computer
- Simulations of a forest fire, a million dice rolls, and a Japanese abacus
- Animations like a virtual fish tank, a rotating cube, and a bouncing DVD logo screensaver
- A first-person 3D maze game
- Encryption programs that use ciphers like ROT13 and Vigenre to conceal text

If youre tired of standard step-by-step tutorials, youll love the learn-by-doing approach of The Big Book of Small Python Projects. Its proof that good things come in small programs!
