So, I’m late to the game and only just learning about the coolness that is python. To be honest, for years the need to keep the indents in the code neat and tidy put me off, but I figured I’d better have a proper look at some point. I spent some time over Christmas going over some tutorials (more below) and more recently I’ve chosen a python-based approach to problems where previously I would have used a different method. So far so good though no doubt my efforts will make grown coders weep…

These are just a few links that I have found really useful- the first is a very good tutorial for new python users who are particularly interested in Geoprocessing, whilst the others deal with more specific problems.

If anyone has any other resources for python beginners, particularly around Open Source GIS and PostgreSQL, feel free to add them in the comments.
