An easy introducion to programming Python?
MIT Open Courseware provides “A Gentle Introduction to Programming Using Python“. The phrase “gentle introduction” has it’s own connotations, but then I noticed the following sentence:
This course will provide a gentle introduction to programming using Pythonâ„¢ for highly motivated students with little or no prior experience in programming computers.
“Highly motivated students”…. I read that as:
It’s really, really hard, but if you really, really want to, you should be able to do it. Gently.
Okay, enough kidding, it really is interesting. This is a course with 10 three-hour sessions to get you starting with Python. The course materials can be downloaded
