This is my first message on the mailing list. I am excited to get started
developing content / backend for the web with Python.
I have a background in PHP, but am convinced that Python is a better, more
I am on a Windows XP machine and I have been using XAMPP for server, php,
I installed Python 2.5 and mod_python successfully. I can serve pages with
.py extension to http://localhost .
The following for example:
from mod_python import apache
Frankly, I don't understand what is going on in the above. This is a bit
different compared to what I am used to.
So, my question, would you all please point me to some introductory
resources, tutorials, books, that focus on Python programming for the web? I
am eventually going to interface with some web services, notably Amazon Web
Services. Also, I'd like to write some server side scripts to serve as a
backend to some Adobe AIR apps.
Any and all advice is extremely appreciated.
Thanks for your time!
