Nice to meet you, Daniel. Hmm... same first name... *grin*
The page is slightly complicated, but that's because it links to almost
everything Python related. For now, you'll want to visit the
Introductions section on the Python web site:
In particular, the "Introductions to Python programming for
non-programmers" section is good to go through. Unless you're already
familiar with programming, DO NOT look at the official tutorial at:
because it's a whirlwind tour of the language. Instead, try something
Alan Gauld's "Learning to Program":
or Josh Cogliati's "A Nonprogrammers Tutorial for Python"
Both of those tutorials are very good. Also, I believe the authors of
those tutorials listen in on this mailing list!
If you have any questions, don't hesitate in sending your questions our
way. Good luck!
