The Python tutorial explains how to program using Python.
The Python tutorial is constructed to teach you the fundamentals of the Python programming language. Eventually, the Python Tutorial will explain how to construct web applications, but currently, you will learn the basics of Python offline. Python can work on the Server Side (on the server hosting the website) or on your computer. However, Python is not strictly a web programming language. That is to say, a lot of Python programs are never intended to be used online. In this Python tutorial, we will just cover the fundamentals of Python and not the distinction of the two.
Python works much like the two previous categories, PHP and ColdFusion as they are all server side programming languages. You will see from the Python tutorials that it's syntax is extremely different than the other two. It is probably the most clean and straightforward language you will ever learn. Just like the other languages, Python is useful because it can dynamically generate content to provide a more customized user experience. Generally, Python is a great starting language for most people, but to others, it is extremely frustrating (primarily due to spacing issues), which is why I have put the Python Tutorial at the end of the server side languages. Enough chatter! We want to learn Python!
