- Code Academy
Code academy offers a self paced webpage and example code editor (You read the goal of a particular section then type code into the sample editor to progress)
This is great if you have at least a minimal understanding of how to write code, or are very self driven to learn.
If you like a little more hand holding/video interaction this might not be for you.
- Learn Python the Hard Way (It's actually really easy)
This eBook by Zed Shaw is generally considered one of the best beginners texts. If you want a solid understanding, and can follow Zed's simple steps you will learn python.
- Learning Interactive Python
Finally if you think you'd do better in a group setting, there's an AWESOME Coursara class that takes you though python. I would strongly recommend finishing Zed Shaw's book first.
