Learn Python the Hard Way Released

Zed Shaw, who we interviewed on Episode 0.3.4, just released Learn Python The Hard Way, an early-beginners guide to Python.

This is not a book for developers interested in learning Python:

If you can already code then the book will probably drive you insane. It’s intended for people who have no coding chops to build up their skills before starting a more detailed book.

The book goes over all the basic data structures, boolean algebra, if-statments, while-loops etc. He even snuck a little parsing in there :)

If a friend or coulleague is interested in learning how to program, this would be a great guide.

Check out the project’s homepage or read the online book.
