holla!
i just got into ubuntu and i'm currently learning perl and python. i first used python in 1999 when i was studying comp sci and learning java, i thought it might be a good alternative. i sort of dropped it though because i hadn't seen a whole lot of support for it at the time and i was such a noob i really needed a lot of help. ubuntu and the linux community seem to use it pretty heavily so i've been wanting to pick it up again..

Hi
I joined this list too, as I use Paint Shop Pro 9, and Blender, both of which use Python scripting. I thought it might be good to see what can be done with Python itself.

Welcome to SheCanCode!
Hey folks,

I've created this community to serve as a support structure / place of learning / place to ask questions about computer programming and computer science. I'm learning python myself, but I'm not going to restrict anyone from asking questions about other languages, or Free operating systems like GNU/Linux, the BSDs, etc. The only restriction I'm going to make is no non-programming-in-Free-languages-related Windows questions. So "how do I install Python on Windows" is cool, "how do I remove spyware / malware from Windows" is not. I'll post some helpful links to the latter type of question in the community info - otherwise let's try and keep the focus on Free software :-)

You are welcome here regardless of your gender, even as this comm was created as a comfortable space for women who are learning to program. If you are of either gender and act like a jerk towards other memebers, then you will not be welcome.

To get people started, here are some resources on Python:
