http://learnpythonthehardway.org/book/ - The Hard Way stuff is all good.

http://www.udacity.com/overview/Course/ ... ev/apr2012 (assumes no computing or programming knowledge)

official tutorials at http://www.python.org/doc/

http://www.codingbat.com (more pracrice than tutorial, but the documentation and help are really good plus you can track progress)

http://www.pythonchallenge.com/ is great fun when you have the basics under your belt

(the last two are most like e.g. codecademy.com,codeavengers.com etc)

Probably good to put this thread or a copy as a sticky at the top of the forum, likely to be a frequently asked question.

Hey all. I have messed around with codeacademy.com and found it pretty neat. Is there anything like that for Python, where it is an online and game-like process? Or is something like that really only able to be done in JavaScript?

http://www.diveintopython.net/ is also useful for a beginner
http://wiki.python.org/moin/TkInter allows you to add a graphical interface to your applications.
http://projecteuler.net provide mathematical challenges aimed to be solved by code, I found this very useful for getting used to different types of loops etc
http://www.tutorialspoint.com/python/index.htm
http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL ... ature=plcp is also very useful.
