Ten Essays on Fizz Buzz (Brightwalton)
Friday, 21 August 2020

As indicated by its subtitle, "Meditations on Python, mathematics, science, engineering, and design", this book is a collection of ten essays in which author Joel Grus explores core Python concepts, software design and testing, mathematics, and deep learning using the children's game Fizz Buzz as the guiding example. Each essay contains code that implements a different solution of Fizz Buzz. In each case the requirement is to print the numbers from 1 to 100, except that if the number is divisible by 3, print "fizz"; if the number is divisible by 5, print "buzz"; and if the number is divisible by 15, print "fizzbuzz".
