I have officially begun learning the Python programming language. I am very excited about this endeavor, seeing as it will be my first programming language. To learn the language, I bought the book Beginning Python: From Novice to Professional by Magnus Lie Hetland. So far, this is a VERY good book to start off with. It is not so egregiously oriented to the complete computer-idiot like some books are, but still moves at a pace that most people can handle very well. The book covers everything from the very basics of Python, to GUIs and network programming. Included in the book are 10 projects that really put what you have learned in the book to work, and give you a nice push into the real world of programming. As far as I am concerned, this book looks like a terrific start to a terrific programming language.
