Something I don't think anyone has mentioned is that Python is 
case-sensitive.

So keywords, identifiers, library functions and so on have to be written 
just right. (For example the identifier "abcdef" can be written 64 
different ways, such as "aBCdEf", and they will all be different symbols.)

This is a complete pain if you're used to a language that ignores case 
(except in data). But pretty much every language now is the same, you 
can't do much about it, you just need to be aware of it.
