An education in Python and maybe OLPC


This is mostly unrelated to DragonFly: I need to get more Python experience in the next few months, mostly around the OLPC project.  I’ve only messed with Python when needed to get an existing script running, etc.  Any Python users that can point me at a good learning resource?

  1. FreeBSD News says:

    Maybe this is too easy, but it’s good for beginners: http://python4kids.wordpress.com/

  2. You can learn python in one week with this book http://www.swaroopch.com/notes/Python/ . In my opinion, this book is the best for newbies.

    Other good resources related to the stdlib are “Python Pocket Reference” and http://getpython3.com/diveintopython3/ .

  3. You also need Make Your Own Sugar Activities, by James Simmons. It will show you just what Python to learn, and give you real-world examples of all of it.

    I will take note of the other suggestions made here for our program at Sugar Labs for teaching Python to schoolchildren using the Pippy IDE, and using the Python programming tiles in Turtle Art. You might find those interesting yourself.
