Beginner Guides For Python?
I started my first class toward a certificate in Information Security this week. The bulk of this class is centered around learning Python.
I know there are hundreds of Python guides and tutorials, including the material given to us in the textbook. However, as an extra bit of insurance, I wanted to ask what was typically considered the easiest to learn Python guides out there. I'm talking about the super easy to learn, idiot-proof stuff for people like myself who never touched the program before. That also includes the numerous app games out there that trivialize this stuff.
On the subject, I was also wondering what kind of entry level jobs would be available to someone who learns Python. If it's possible to get a job after finishing this class alone, I would like to know about it. I'm told companies tend to value experience with these programs, so if there are opportunities to get my foot in the door, I would like to learn about them.
And lastly, I was also wondering if there was a recommended path to learning these programs based on your prior knowledge. Basically, learning Python means I can more easily wrap my head around X program, and doing that lets me have the knowledge to move onto Y, etc.
