I maintain a page for introductory Python learning with a bunch of links.


While its mainly geared towards middle school and high school students it does have links to other Python sources.

Subject: [CentralOH] Paging Tate

You wanted to ask me some questions about Django at the next dojo.  I had forgotten that my wife and I are going to a show Thursday and I won't be able to make it to the dojo.  I'll be at the monthly meeting and the following dojo.

We had quite a few people show up tonight.  Various topics discussed were:

use to learn Python?

reservations about his opinions)
"Automating the Boring Stuff with Python" by Al Swiggert (see
https://automatetheboringstuff.com/ for details)

-- Web Sites:
Main Python web site: https://wiki.python.org/moin/BeginnersGuide/Overview

- What ways are available for someone who is learning Python as their
first language?

-- Web Site:
Link off main Python web site:

- Pandas equivalents in the .net world
-- .net.core and C# programming was mentioned
-- Anyone have some other options?

= Ansible (https://www.ansible.com/) and its use to automate sysadmin
and other tasks.

- Django (https://www.djangoproject.com/) and its ability to provide an
easily used ORM as well as fast web development.

= gedit (https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Gedit) useful as a text editor for
beginners (and not-so-beginners)

- Spring (https://spring.io/) a library/framework for building web and
other applications in Java.

- Ham radio call sign lookup (perhaps https://www.qrz.com ?)
