Python Language Programming Tutorials

Huge List of Python Tutorials, more than 200, sorted by topic and category.

What is Python?
Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming language. It is often compared to Tcl, Perl, Scheme or Java. Python combines remarkable power with very clear syntax. It has modules, classes, exceptions, very high level dynamic data types, and dynamic typing. There are interfaces to many system calls and libraries, as well as to various windowing systems (X11, Motif, Tk, Mac, MFC, wxWidgets). New built-in modules are easily written in C or C++. Python is also usable as an extension language for applications that need a programmable interface. The Python implementation is portable: it runs on many brands of UNIX, on Windows, OS/2, Mac, Amiga, and many other platforms. If your favorite system isn't listed here, it may still be supported, if there's a C compiler for it. The Python implementation is copyrighted but freely usable and distributable, even for commercial use.

How to add reminders to Firefox

ReminderFox is a Firefox Web Browser extension that displays and manages lists of date-based reminders and ToDo's. ReminderFox does not seek to be a full-fledged calendar system. In fact, the target audience is anybody that simply wants to remember important dates without having to run a fat calendar application.

Firefox Extensions
Extensions are small add-ons that add new functionality to Firefox. They can add anything from a toolbar button to a completely new feature. They allow the application to be customized to fit the personal needs of each user if they need additional features, while keeping Firefox small to download.

Ubuntu - Development Release, Order Free CDs, What's the Fuss?

Development Release of Ubuntu Linux 5.10 Colony 5
Distrowatch reports on a new development release of Ubuntu Linux 5.10 is now available for download and testing.

Order Ubuntu 5.10 CDs that will be posted to you for FREE
If you cannot download CDs, or would simply like more attractive pressed CDs, Ubuntu can send you pressed copies of the Install and Live CDs free of charge.

Ubuntu a Debian Derivative or Fork?
Opinion piece asking what's the fuss with Ubuntu? Does it want to become THE distribution for everybody? Does it want to fork Debian?

Official Ubuntu Web Site
Ubuntu is a complete Linux-based operating system, freely available with both community and professional support. It is developed by a large community and we invite you to participate too! The Ubuntu community is built on the ideas enshrined in the Ubuntu Manifesto: that software should be available free of charge, that software tools should be usable by people in their local language and despite any disabilities, and that people should have the freedom to customise and alter their software in whatever way they see fit.
