Inspired by the CodeAcademy  project, I’ve decided to learn a programming language this year. Back in high school I’ve learnt Pascal , Delphi , Assembly  and C  but many years passed so I forgot all the sintax but not the basics.

What I need is some basic scripting, read and write on a DB, a web interface and integration with network protocols.

After reading some websites, googling a lot, I choose Python that has a simple sintax, many libraries and is widely used so I think I could get support from many forums available.

I’m starting from the basics with Learning Python the Hard Way , a great website with many exercises.

My plan is to develop good programming skills by the end of the year, I already have some projects in mind so… let’s start!
