Totally new to the forum and also to Python. I require to teach myself how to code and program in python but need a number of questions clarifying before i embark upon this quest.
Firstly i want to use a book or resource which would teach me how to competently learn how to code and understand the principles behind python. I have very very limited programming knowledge and consider myself a complete beginner so require a book or resource which would teach me everything practically from scratch? So what do people suggest i use??
Secondly which version of python should i be learning in, ive read that version 3 is better however is not used as much as version 2. I am a secondary and college teacher so i need to learn in order to deliver GCSE and A-Level curriculum which has heavy programming content and i need to ideally use the most recent i assume unless you would suggest using the older version.
Your help would greatly assist me in developing myself and breaking the programming barrier that has been infront of me for a number of years. I am extremely excited at mustering the courage to begin and your help will really set me along my way.
Thanks in advance
