Hey Alex

First of all welcome

I've been programming in Python for almost 1 year now and I think I can 
answer two of your questions

>1. Is there any decent forum were people are talking in python ?
You found one of them, here you have people willing to help each others at 
no cost.
Send an email with your problem and someone here will answer

>2. what about speed ? (any beginners question I suppose). Is it something 
>be concerned about ? Does anyone know how it compares to PHP ? (for Java I
>allready know)
I have no experience in web Python but I do have experience with PHP, 
JavaScript and ASP.NET and I have to tell you: you can't compare PHP with 
JavaScript, PHP is server-side and JavaScript is Client-side so the speed is 
irrelevant because they are two different things. You can compare PHP with 
ASP. About Python I'm not sure if this is a server or client-side. This is 
the first thing I would ask.

>3. I want any usefull resources you can provide me with
You may want to invest in some books. Try searching in Amazon. I have one 
very practical called Python: Developing Applicattions
In fact this is a database book, but the aim is Python on web pages with 
The autor is Sonu Mangla

Best Regards
