I had to learn Python this week for a little project at work. (OK, I guess I didn’t have to learn Python, but it seemed like the best tool for the job.) Just for reference, here are some key sites, if you’re going to try to pick up Python:
- Main Python site: http://www.python.org/
- wxPython – a GUI toolkit for Python: http://www.wxpython.org/
- py2exe – a tool to turn Python programs into Windows EXEs: http://py2exe.sourceforge.net/
I’ve also found that the Python 2.1 Bible is a decent book to get started with.
