Programming Python by Mark Lutz

Python is a great language for writing scripts that can be easily ran on servers or for writing web and desktop apps.  This book helps guide you through the syntax and coding style that make up a python app.  It’s definitely one of the more flexible and easy to use modern languages.

There are lots of useful code examples and snippets to help you pick up the concepts and write your own apps.  If you need to learn python, this book is a good place to start.

I haven’t used python on any production servers yet, but I’m anxious to put some of the ideas in this book into action.  It would be cool to learn more about Django and how it leverages the language, but with my current schedule it might be a while before that happens.
