I want to learn

P: n/a
Hi,

I have been "programming" in the .net environment and ide for a few
years and I am looking to make the switch over to python. I have
absolutely no python experience whatsoever. I am looking for a python
guru who has instant messenger or gtalk or whatever who can meet me
online in the mornings, give me some direction for the day and then
answer some questions here and there online throughout the day. This
would not be time consuming on your end and if necessary I would pay
you for this. Ideally you would have familiarity with c# asp.net visual
studio ide ajax.net etc. so you would understand where I'm coming from.
Sorry to interrupt the group but since all python gurus appear to be
happily at work on the next level apps at google nobody responded to my
craigslist ads.

Thanks

Maybe a Python gury isn't necessary, maybe a person that know the
language enough may be enough.

So you are looking for a person (no, a guru), that stays by your side
the whole day, gives you answers and helps you learning python.

This is a ridiculous request.

If you want to learn python, you should start with visiting
http://www.diveintopython.org/ and read it. If you have previous
programming experience, this is the place to start.

You can always ask your questions here on the list, there are enough
people that are willing to help.

Also look into the tutor mailing list. Not EXACTLY what you're asking
for but, very helpful, friendly people subscribe to it.
