If you want to become a python ninja, you need to start applying your skills
right away, because simply knowing the semantics and rules and the way
python interprets data is not going to get you very far. You'll just know
how to do everything but have nothing to do.

If you want to improve yourself I would start looking at all the things
python drives. These are exciting because the simplicity of python comes
alive as you work with these different frameworks.

Start picking up framework experience with Python. I would highly recomend
Django, its a framework for dynamic websites which is really good.

Python can be used to create GIMP scripts with, which is pretty sweet.

If you want to make 2d games, Pygame is an AWSOME library. I used it to
create ubuntu fighter. Where you played the ubuntu logo shooting "GPL"
bullets at the M$ ships

Get pySQL and start learning how to interact with Databases, this is a very
valuable skill!

I can't remember but there are 3d engines written in python too.

I list all of these because, beyond the study of the language, the way I
really and truly learned the ins and outs of it was in the terminal hacking
away. And thus, you need a test project to experiment with. Making games was
fun for me. Maybe you'll like the dynamic websites? Its up to you. As the
other people said as well, go to the python meetings. I have only been too
one or two meetings, but when I went to them, afterwards I had to put my
head down for 5 mins. because you truly learn a lot!
