Learning Python

Thanks to Eric Steven Raymond for giving advise to newbies to start learning programming with Python. It was my first programming language, as I was following the How to become a hacker.

Learning Python as a first language is not that hard, because python is very easy language as compared to others, and mind you I’m talking about true programming languages. Python comes with very good tutorial and documentation which includes library refrence, module index, macintosh library reference, language reference, extending and embedding, and python/C API. So just jump into the world of Python!

Following is the very basic guideline.

1. Download and install Python for your platform: http://www.python.org/download/
2. Read the tutorial at: http://docs.python.org
3. Here are some more links to the online python books available:

4. Some other very good python resources:

5. Checkout http://www.pygame.org if you are interested in python game programming.
6. Last but very usefull joing the python tutor mailinglist at: http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/tutor

That was it.
Enjoy Python! and Happy programming!
