Greetings fellow Lividians. I was wondering what is the best book or website for a greenhorn like myself to learn Python basics?
I'm kind of a mutant since I've basically learned Python from Google searches whilst dissecting Live's _Framework scripts, so beginner advice is not necessarily my strong suit. For bare essentials, the docs.python.org pages are a good reference, and for Live/_Framework related stuff (I'm making the assumption that its the reason your interested in learning Python), I definitely suggest checking out Hanz Petrov's blog to get a feel for what's going on. Unfortunately, since Live uses a custom compiled Python interpreter that we don't have access to source code of, some of the standard rules for Python coding and debugging don't apply, so its somewhat of a "dark art" to get things working. I'm always glad to answer questions about specifics if I can ;)
Thanks. I'm actually thinking about trying my hand at writing an Ohm RGB script for Bitwig Studio, due to be released this summer. I'll most likely end up leaving such a task to those who know better, but I felt it couldn't hurt to know a little bit.
