Blended Reality: college actions.

Maybe this topic sounds a little offtopic in this forum, but because this forum is most of the time where people ask how to code things.
Anyways people in here are sometimes wondering how to learn Python or c++, well here some books I found on the internet in pdf format.

Wow thats really cool i really want to learn python so after i finsh my mini game im going to learn python

Yea, A Byte of Python is definitely a great book- very easy to understand!

After that, I’d recommend Dive Into Python. This one goes into much more depth but is a bit more difficult.

AMAZING! This is just what I’ve been searching for! How useful is this with Blender? How much of the documentation is non-usable?

Almost all Python can be used in Blender, openGL and Tkinter dosent work in the Real time engine thought. I think all the other modules works :slight_smile:

Thanks. I can’t wait to get it out from this damn computer to my own!

hi all - more free books you might be interested in to learn from scratch C, java or python

Great, very nice book indeed. I added it to my server. I think I create a html page with links to reference material like the sticky topic, but then a complete html page. The sticky topic is getting a little messy. :-?

I hear that you can use C++ in the game engine through Python. Is this true?

Sort of, you can code extension modules for Python in C++, and use those in Python scripts.
