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
gentle like:

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!
