Greetings to my fellow programmers and those of who are just starting to become interested in programming. I'd first like to start this off by saying, I did a search on BlackHatWorld after seeing a thread about a programming question, and found that this was NOT posted on the forum in this fashion. So here we go, here is the first URL. It is an introduction to Python, walking you through how to install the shell, explaining it's uses, meaning of code, and functions. You can access all of the youtube videos they post there, but I am going to post them here for convenience. https://developers.google.com/edu/python/introduction 1.1 Introduction & Strings: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKTZoB2Vjuk 1.2 Lists & Sorting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPYupizJYQI 1.3 Dicts & Files: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=haycL41dAhg 2.1 Regular Expressionshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWyoYtvJpe4 2.2 Utilities http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKZ8GBKmeDM 2.3 Utilities:URLs and HTTP, Exceptions http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nn2KQmVF5Og 2.4 Conclusions/Closing Thoughts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcteAbMC1Ok Within that page I originally linked is also a group of exercises that they recommend, which I also do as well. This should get anyone started and provide them with a good amount of knowledge to get into programming. If anyone has any questions, I'd be happy to answer them. If any experienced programmers have some resources they would care to share or any recommendations they may have, please feel free. Happy programming!
