DescriptionA comprehensive introduction to the python programming language, including numerical python (numpy, scipy, matplotlib) and GUI creation with tkinter. This is one good option if you have some basic experience and would really like to deepen your understanding of python or to get into numerical python or GUI creation. However, there are pretty much no exercises, so you should combine/alternate this with more applied things, such as the hello biosphere exercises. Some more advanced things (sys, threading, graphs, …) are also available.
Level: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Format: Online (browser-based)
Time Required: unknown
Prerequisites: You can start with the python 2 or python 3 tutorials as a complete beginner, but it would probably be better to have a little bit of programming experience before going through it. The Introduction to Python Programming by Toby Hodges would be a good way of getting this experience. For the numerical python and tkinter tutorials, you should have a decent grasp of the python basics.
