    Best Python Tutorial?

    Heya'll,

    Just wondering if anyone has a favourite, easy-to-read tutorial for beginning to learn python? I've scanned the official Doc's but my head hurt

    Thanks,
    deception

    Thanks I did use Google but was just seeing what worked for other people, as there was quite a few to choose from

    Re: Best Python Tutorial?

    I've also decided to learn to program in python (and program in general as python will be my first non-markup language). I made the decision largely because of Ubuntu.

    Is there a place, forum - website - wiki - whatever, which specifically looks at how python can be used in ubuntu? Beginning scripting tuturials, perhaps.

    I know that the people behind ubuntu have a passion for python. It's rubbed off on me and I hope that I can actually learn something useful as a result.

    If you already have experience with at least one object-oriented language, Dive Into Python (included in Warty's default install!) is excellent and free in HTML form.

    The best one I've seen and read so far is "How to think like a Computer Scientist: Python Edition". It's fairly simple and an easy read.

    The little bit of python i've done, i've learned from the tutorials on python.org. They were good enough for me. But then again, im not a very discerning kinda guy.

    "Learning Python" published by O'Reilly is pretty reasonable. You gotta pay for it though. Your friendly library may have a copy.

    Dive into Python, as someone else notes, is pretty good and free.

    Re: Best Python Tutorial?

    I'm pretty familiar with programming in Python already, but I'm curious about using it to write Gnome applications. Can anyone recommend a good resource to get started on that?

    Re: Best Python Tutorial?

    Maybe this tutorial from linux journal can help you with the gnome+python (pygtk) programming.
    Before ask "why open one window for each folder?", please read this, this, this, this, this(search for spatial), this and this.
