In just the past month, a couple of great resources for learning python have been created.
- Getting started with Python: Tips, Tools and Resources – If you are new to python, this is a great place to start. It contains a brief description and links to books, tutorials, and MOOCs.
- Getting Started With Python for Data Scientists – This focuses more on tools specifically for data science.
Combined together, the previous links should provide a person all the resources necessary to begin doing some data science with the python language.
