The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

OK, I found an interesting screencast online about how to make gtk Pyton apps. The thing is, though, the guy was using the interactive shell. I've been trying to get his code into a script, and have been having troubles.
Is "self" just a shortcut to it's own class? So self.something instead of It'sOwnClass.something? I've been thinking that so far, so correct me if I'm wrong.
It's a shortcut to the current instance of the class, not the class itself. There is always exactly one class, but there can be zero or more instances of it.
And "self" is not really a "shortcut", it is the instance. Almost all object-oriented languages work this way (by having the methods belong to the class, and passing the instance as the first parameter), but most of them hide this.
