Daily Blog #469: Book Highlight Learning Python for Forensics

Hello Reader,
            If you've read some of the older blog series you know that I'm a big proponent of getting new and old examiners programming. In my Automating DFIR series I focused on people who already knew Python and wanted to learn how to interact with forensic images in their scripting, but it didn't help those examiners who didn't have a good place to start with programming in the first place.

I've started reading Learning Python for Forensics and the Python Digital Forensics Cookbook to see what Preston Miller and Chapin Bryce had to say. So far I think they've done an excellent job getting new programmers up to speed with useful scripts that will help to automate their workflow.
