Good advice.

Alternatively, there is a whole tutorial of exercises with the things
to do already existing <URL:>.

Start at the beginning, work through each exercise – *do* them and
experiment until you understand them – before continuing.

Ask questions if your experiments leave you confused, and be prepared to
show what exercise you're doing and the code of your experiment.

By the end of the tutorial you'll have a solid grasp of all of Python.
