Has anyone any experience of using Python? How easy is it to learn?
Some specifics to be aware of is that there are significant differences between Python 2 and Python 3, which are enough to make them two distinct languages (see http://www.webdesignforum.com/20181-js-libraries.html#post88794 )
For me, the reason for using Python is that it is a 'native' language for Linux operating systems and as I do not run any M$ Windows machines any "desktop" scripting I need to do is going to be Perl or Python.
For web processing ... Python is 'neater' than PHP, with regards to the function syntax and naming.
Primarily https://docs.python.org/3/ is the only reference I have ever needed.
Thanks for the reference Chris. I am also going to try and look at some videos too.
