    I've heard it's not too bad to learn actually. I have a few friends that mess around with it and they've said it wasn't too hard to pick up on at all really. I believe they said it was somewhat similar to PHP so if you have any experience with it, it might be a bit easier to learn. There's a lot of tutorials all over online anymore though. Best thing you can do is set aside some time so that you can throw yourself into it fully and not have gaps in between learning. It makes it hard to go back if you lose your momentum sometimes. I can't speak to the quality of these personally but I did find a few tutorials that might help you get started here: http://docs.python.org/2/tutorial/, http://www.learnpython.org/, and http://www.tutorialspoint.com/python/ Hope its helps and good luck.

    akacash is right you need to throw yourself into it, takes time but after a time it just *clicks* the good thing about python is there is so many 3rd party modules makes it great for making seo, scraping related software.

    Google => Python tutorials

    Me I learning it from Learn Python the Hard Way since I did it with Ruby and I liked how he taught us how to do it. But there is a list on github somewhere with a lot of programming ebooks for free. Also try to go again on github and find some python sourcecode and deconstruct it and LEARN. ofc the official website of Python is a must.

    I would say that the most important is not which book or tutorial is the best but which is the one which suits you. Everyone have a different learning method, me I like to learn and deconstrcut to understand some likes only theory and try by themselves.

    There are tons of python resources out there. What is your goal? Building a website? If you have no programming experience I'd suggest to start with PHP or Javascript to get your feet wet with http and programming concepts first before adding complexity.
    If you want to use python for scripting and smaller programs (also if you are looking into hacking) I can recommend "Violent Python: A Cookbook for Hackers, Forensic Analysts, Penetration Testers and Security Engineers"

    If you know some other programming language already I can recommend Python koans. Failing tests that you're supposed to fix and thus learning the programming language. It helped me comming from Java and Ruby.

    CodeAcademy has already been mentioned, MIT gives all their coursework away for free and have an intro to programming course in Python, Coursera offers Python courses starting at the end of March, and there's always the option to take an online course or two through a community college. While the information is freely available online, you might find the online classroom format beneficial to learning.

    I would go with python. Download version 2.7 (3.x sucks) and start programming. python moto is KISS-keep it simple stupid :)
    The development time is low and simple. The windows python documentation is great (in the python installation folder). It has a lot of examples.

    The best method to learn the programming language is to define some problem and solve it.
    First, you need to understand what do you want to do with python? Do you want to build web sites, do you want to build bots, do you want automate some tasks on your computer? Understand what type of tasks you want to solve, then imagine some really simple problem of that type and solve it with python, then set more difficult goal and achieve it with power of python, and so on :) Do not waste many time to books - only practice can give you real knowledge's.

    1. Define a problem
    2. Use google to find answers
    3. Solve the problem
    4. Go to step #1

    Thread is sort of ancient but I figure if anyone comes across it in the future, they'd be happy to know about this site:

    cscircles.cemc.uwaterloo.ca/using-this-website/

    Excellent for beginner programmers interested in python. Sorta surprised nobody else posted it.

    I'd also recommend code academy after which I'd recommend jumping straight into web framework like django or web2py as they'll allow you to build some cool looking sites/platforms with useful functionality. Also will teach you the ins and outs of MVC programming which can be applied to most other languages.
