I’ve been meaning to learn Python for a while, so I’m forcing myself to code one of my current projects at work in this language. I like it so far. Being used to Perl, I found the syntax a bit constricting at first, but I’m getting used to it. I like that the standard library comes with a lot of advanced functionality, including XML processing and URL access.
Some useful resources:
- Dive into Python
- The Python Tutorial, Python Reference Manual and Python Library Reference.
- A very nice Python mode for Eclipse, including fairly advanced features such as code completion, refactoring, content assist, etc.
- The Python Cookbook
