I've been searching for a while, and I can't really find a suitable Python tutorial. Below I'll list a few things about me and my goals.
- new to Linux- using OpenSuSE 10.3 x86_64
- new to programming- I've done a little bit in C#, but not too much.
- computer science major- I'll be starting university in January, with a major in Computer Science.
- create a program to backup folders and files.
- create a program to store bank numbers of friends and relatives for wire transfers
- create an address book program (perhaps incorporating the bank program)
- create a side-scrolling game
As you can see, I do have specific goals in mind and there are things I'd definitely like to do. With the exception of the side-scrolling game, I'd like to initially create all of those programs in a CLI environment, later adding a GUI for other users. Also, I understand that Python is an excellent cross-platform language, so it would be rather trivial to write a program on Linux and port it to Mac OS X, Windows, FreeBSD, etc...
Also, I have a number of ideas on how to implement the first three programs, so even though I don't know how to really program, I do have designs written on how they can be implemented.
Finally, I'm looking for tutorials that are easy. I'm not looking for the Kerrighan & Ritchie's The C Programming Language for Python. Something that moves at a moderate pace would be good.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
