Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Python Help!

So I'm taking on an independent study that will have me doing some work in Python with latent semantic analysis and similar processes. I don't know Python yet, however, and need some good books to get my feet wet with the language, but also deals with some advanced topics.

2 different books is fine.

I'm by no means an expert at any language, but most recently been using C++, Java before that, and have used DrScheme and Perl back in the day.

    dive into python
    http://www.diveintopython.org/

    The site has been flaky lately.

    Python in a Nutshell is good too.

    I'm going to be reimbursed for any books I buy through work, so I figured I might as well actually get some books that I can keep handy. Anything else besides Python in a Nutshell?

    The Python Cookbook is good, too. Especially so if you mostly need to know stuff about the language specifically and already have experience with others.

    Wow, noticed a few python threads all on page 1. Oh well. Books bought, case closed.
