I know next-to-nothing about computers. Or programming. I want to learn Python!
Ok, so I know nothing about the internal logic and bits of computers (most technological AskMes fly right past me) but I have decided I want to learn Python. The internet seems to have lots and lots of resources for this, but I am having trouble distinguishing the signal from the noise on this one. What resources are great for someone who knows nothing about programming and wants to learn Python?
Notes: I have a Mac, I don't know if this matters. If I should be pursuing some other language or method of approaching this, let me know!
I have seen this
question and this
question but I am more looking for resources/how-tos/ guides/handholding, and not potential finished products. And that second one is from a few years ago, so there may be new material by now, I am assuming.
Also, any tips you yourselves can give me would be appreciated - seriously, GUI? IDLE? Shells? We're talking total novice here, I don't even really know if those terms are on topic!
