Thorsten and Isaac have written this book based on a programming course we teach for Master's Students at the School of Computer Science of the University of Nottingham.
The book is intended for students with little or no background in programming coming from different backgrounds educationally as well as culturally.
It is not mainly a Python course but we use Python as a vehicle to teach basic programming concepts.
Hence, the words conceptual programming in the title. We cover basic concepts about data structures, imperative programming, recursion and backtracking, object-oriented programming, functional programming, game development and some basics of data science.
