I've embarked upon the Python journey. Running Python 2.3.3 on Gentoo
I've been running Linux for almost a yr now and this proves to be a
never-ending learning experience. I have absolutely no programming
experience at all. Not even shell scripting.
Right now I feel it little overwhelmed with all the documentation that I
have. I'm sure that I'm not the only one that has felt this way. The
frustrating part of my initial step towards learning Python is, almost
all of the tutorials that I have seem to wiz through all of the
concepts and symantics without reinforcing the newly learned concepts
with exercises, exercises, exercises....examples, examples and then the
I'm finding myself jumping from book to book, tutorial to tutorial
feeling like I'll find something eventually that will fit. This is why
I'm asking for guidance. At this point I don't know if I'm being to
anal retentive thinking that I need to understand every little thing I
read, or that maybe there's a tutorial that I'm missing. Is there a
proven structured path to Enlightenment??
I guess what I'm asking for is a suggestion of how a non-programmer can
best progress from a non-programmer to starting to put these Python
concepts to use. Do I just plow through a tutorial and goto the next
eventually at some point slowly understanding?
