You should check out the official Python website.

From the landing page at www.python.org:

Python´┐Ż is a dynamic object-oriented programming language that can be used for many kinds of software development. It offers strong support for integration with other languages and tools, comes with extensive standard libraries, and can be learned in a few days. Many Python programmers report substantial productivity gains and feel the language encourages the development of higher quality, more maintainable code.


The official website is a great reference. There are also some great books out there on Python if you're looking for more information. If you're new to programming Python, I totally recommend the following book:

Python Programming for the Absolute Beginner by Michael Dawson

If you're going to be doing alot with python, I'd also recommend picking up a copy of Core Python, along with the Python Reference Book:

Core Python Programming by Wesley J. Chun

Python Essential Reference by David M. Beazley

Learning Python gets excellent reviews as well.

Happy Python!!!
