Allen -

Greetings! As a long time java developer with an interest in broadening my skills how would you recommend I go about picking up some solid python skills? Is there a particular book or site you would recommend where a seasoned developer wouldn't be board but would be challenged yet gain a solid understanding of the language?

Thanks in advance!
Brett

Hi Brett,

Think Python is mostly aimed at people with no programming experience, so it might be too slow for you. There are lots of good Python books out there, but if you want to get immersed in Python quickly, I think the Python Cookbook is a good start.

Thanks!
Allen
