The first time I came a cross Python was 2002. At that time my company was developing Java ME applications and games. Nokia has released at that time an API for developing games and applications for their S60 handsets. The second time was 2008 when Python 3 was released and I chose to take things seriously and delve into it.
If you are interested in a quick jump start (in Hebrew) I recommend you to try the Israeli Guide to Python. You can find it online at www.pythonbook.co.il. If you are interested in learning Python for free, I recommend you to try using my Python Fundamentals community online free course.
In order to stay up-to-date with the evolvement of Python I recommend you to join the Python Developers or the Python Developers Israel professional communities.
If you want to take things seriously and become a professional Python Developer I invite you to join my Python Programming professional course. You can find its detailed plan at http://tinyurl.com/lifemichaelpython.
