Along these lines, I think that the best resource is the internet 
itself.  There is a lot of info that can be found simply via google.

I find that the standard Python documentation is invaluable when it 
comes to simply find stuff that the standard library can already do.

Books, such as Dive into Python, are available on the web for free.

IRC, mailing lists, pastebins, etc. are all excellent sources of 
information also.
