Python Ecosystem - An Introduction » mirnazim.org
When developers shift from PHP, Ruby or any other platform to Python, the very first road block they face (most often) is a lack of an overall understanding of the Python ecosystem. Developers often yearn for a tutorial or resource that explains how to accomplish most tasks in a more or less standard way. What follows is an extract from the internal wiki at my workplace, which documents the basics of the Python ecosystem for web application development for our interns, trainees and experienced developers who shift to Python from other platforms. This is not a complete resource. My target is to make it a work in perpetual progress. Intended Audience This is not about teaching Python - the programming language. I am assuming you are working on Linux (preferably Ubuntu/Debian) or a Linux-like operating system. Search the web for the best possible ways of installing Python on your operating system. The version confusion TL;DR: Python 2.x is the status quo; Python 3 is the shiny new thing.
