So, can anyone recommend a good Python tutorial set? I have the one on the "learnpython.org" site but was wondering if anyone else can suggest something suitable.
Time for me to get my code skills a little more up to date.

I don't know if it's _quite_ what you're after, but have you looked at Codecademy? Python is one of its languages, and it's supposed to be a reasonable place to learn.

Cool! It's certainly better than the learnpython.org one so far

It's what Paddington has pointed at for the kids to learn to programme (not that there's been much progress so far... but it will happen at _some_ point, I'm sure:-) )

Afraid not, but I do recommend checking out numpy at some point - it's an incredibly useful multidimensional array addon. I use it in almost everything.

Also virtualenv for making per-project python environments so you can install specific sets of libraries without cluttering up your system or breaking other projects, and pip for actually installing stuff.

Oh, and depending what you want to use it for, iPython and matplotlib for scientific computing, or django for building website backends, likely hosted on a PAAS like heroku.

I've just started playing with Pythonista for coding small iOS projects on-device, too. The editor's pretty basic, but the libraries are decent and I like being able code on something less intrusive than a laptop.

I learned phython with a 10 minute tutorial which was excellent. I could not find it (thought it was on the main python site), but found this:
