Welcome to Google's Python Class -- this is a free class for people with a little bit of programming experience who want to learn Python. The class includes written materials, lecture videos, and lots of code exercises to practice Python coding.
In this interactive tutorial, we'll cover many essential Python idioms and techniques in depth, adding immediately useful tools to your belt.

My credentials: I am a resident of Montreal, father of two great kids, husband of one special woman, a full-time Python programmer, author of the Docutils project and reStructuredText , an editor of the Python Enhancement Proposals (or PEPs), an organizer of PyCon 2007, and chair of PyCon 2008, a member of the Python Software Foundation, a Director of the Foundation for the past year, and its Secretary. In the tutorial I presented at PyCon 2006 (called Text & Data Processing), I was surprised at the reaction to some techniques I used that I had thought were common knowledge.
