Is Learn Python the hard way is the book to follow to learn python?

    It is a very good free resource that is great in getting your feet wet. It is a good starting point but the site / book does just that. Gets your feet wet.

    If you are doing it for networking https://pynet.twb-tech.com/ I cant recommend that site enough.

    If just for general also look into the book Automate the boring stuff

    Well I am actually learning it for scripting (Linux). Hopefully following it along with exercise will give me at least some insights of Python.

    Thank you very much for your response.

    There is a video series of Automate the Boring Stuff with Python at udemy.com

    I've been watching it and definitely recommend! Good instructor and it goes over the basics and shows how to do some cool things. Doesn't get too deep but very good for the basics and gives you idea of what Python can do.

    I just try to develop things. Convert a small library to python and you will learn most of the nuances.

    Something with 10 or less classes probably 10k less or lines of code.

    Examples of small python programs
