Python Programming Language

Python is yet another programming language I came across while browsing through google's code page. It wasn't the first time I've heard of it though. Curious, I made a visit to the official site and in just a few moments I got intrigued and decided to make "python" my very first object oriented programming language.I chose python primarily for pygame which happens to be a video game design tool for amateur developers.
                    Python is also a scripting language which means I can even make some web applications and IRC bots making use of it. Then there was this dilemma on whether I should start off learning python 2 or 3, the official site recommended python 2.7 which is fairly similar to python 3 (the latest version; there are a few syntactical changes in python 3) but people who've actually learned the language recommended that I'd start off with python 3 and so I did.
I've started off learning it from the tutorial meant for people already familiar with a programming language.
