Ideas for Learning Python





SonLight
I came across an old stackoverflow question about becoming more proficient in Python:

Many of the suggestions seem to still be valid, so if you use Python or think you would like to learn it, I recommend looking at the suggestions.

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2573135/python-progression-path-from-apprentice-to-guru?rq=1

One suggestion in particular is the introductory class Google uses in house:

https://developers.google.com/edu/python/?csw=1

I read through the introductory material and the article on strings, then tried the exercises. I had to change Ninja's settings to use Python 2 instead of Python 3, but after that it worked like a charm. Each task is simple (if you remember the right function to use) but with lots of chances to make little mistakes. The program simply tests your code and says OK for each case it gets the right answer for.

If string operations are easy for you, you might want to jump straight to the exercises; otherwise I would suggest reading the text and maybe watching the video.

The one thing I'm missing is the discussion we'd have in a live class. If any of you want to comment on alternative solutions or what is the most Pythonic way to do some of them, I think it might help all of us.

I'm also planned to learn Python after my final semester.

Hey,
I have been learning python for 4-5 years now and I believe that the best place to learn python from are the python docs ( https://docs.python.org/2.7/ ). I would also recommend learning python 2.7 first before learning 3.4.

I order to benifit the most from the docs i like to set myself goals (like small projects) and use the docs or stack overflow to learn new ways to achieve new features of the program.

If you want any more help on learning python contact me at matthew@matek.org

Dr. Chuck makes easy to understand, yet advanced concepts known by video, and by his free downloadable book.

CODE COMBAT

Seriously, a fun and engaging "game" that helps you drill syntax, and a number of other basic idiosyncrasies of learning a programming language. It keeps you engaged, by preventing "new language blues," or what I really mean:

Day 1: I'll learn X language!
Day 2: Yay, Hello World!
Day 3: I'll learn it tomorrow
Day 4: I'll learn it tomorrow [loop]
Day 5: ...

I use a lot of CodeSkulptor is a browser-based Python interpreter.
There are some nice demos for example Simple music player.
