Learning

Postby medavidcook » Mon Feb 11, 2013 12:53 pm

Hello All

I am new to Python and have a few questions.

1. How easy is Python to learn?

2. Do you need any other language background? i.e php, java, HTML, CSS etc

I have full knowledge of HTML and CSS, baisc PHP and no java.

Thanks for you time.

Thank you for the response

Are there any decent guides that are easy to follow and will not confuse me.

Thanks

Learning python is very simple
just keep codeing
I myself code almost everyday sometimes for hours on end
and sometimes I even nuke everything ive coded and start over
just learn the basics and build up from there
if you start from the top and move your way down
you will be slinging mad python everywhere :D
-basics(lists,dicts)
-file i/o(open,read,write)
- troubleshooting(reading tracebacks,understanding tracebacks)
- adv troubleshooting(finding the source of tracebacks)
- networking (sockets,urllib)
- modules(creating,using,dissecting)
