Welcome to the Python forum on TAO.
I’d like to post a sticky, growing list of useful Python-related links. If you’re new to Python or looking to dig deeper, these should point you in the right direction.
I’ll archive the most useful links on the TAO Wiki, but this thread can remain an informal starting point.
