Code With Repl.it Review

Code With Repl.it: From Beginner to Expert Through Guided Tutorials is a free ebook by Gareth Dwyer sponsored by Repl.it.

It contains a series of tutorials and walkthroughs to learn Python using Repl.it. Each tutorial is a complete project that implements an app or tool.

The book groups the tutorials into three parts, from beginner to advanced.

Part 1 covers the basics of developing and running code with Repl.it. Part 2 is about software engineering best practices and tools such as version control with GitHub, testing with Pytest, collaborating with other developers, code security, and more. The last part builds more advanced projects in domains ranging from web apps to machine learning.

Repl.it is an excellent online IDE with support for Python and dozens of other languages. As a Chrome OS enthusiast, I love Repl.it as it works fully in the cloud and requires no software other than a browser.

Code With Repl.it teaches how programming, testing, and structuring Python code fits into the Repl.it environment and workflow.

Another thing I like of Coding With Repl.it is its project-based approach. The book presents the code of non-trivial apps in a variety of domains that do something useful or interesting, not a series of abstract code snippets.
