Hi all,

I want to write a sudoku solver and I want to do it with Python. Can someone recommend me online tutorials or any other resources to learn Phyton?
Thanks alot in advance.

This question has been posted tons of times on this forum. A quick search of this forum or google should give you the answer you're looking for. Personally, I like Dive into Python

Good choice of the language - python ie easy to learn for beginner, but scales well for real projects.

There are many good books mentioned at python.org website. You may want to take a look at my pet project learn python (http://learnpydia.pbwiki.com/), where I link to python books for beginners, and also data structures and simple (and harder0 tasks to solve.

I'm a huge advocate of Python. :D How about the tutorial by the language's author?
