Differences between Python 2 and 3 - This articles explains the subtle and not so subtle differences (print ('...'), input(...) and eval(input(..)) instead of raw_input and input in 3, etc)

Python Style Guide - Readability Counts! And hey this document shows a desire for standardization of coding to aid everyone in the community

ActiveState - implementation and IDE

PyDev - IDE

I like Dive into Python its pretty clear and really brings the reader up to speed in a concise manner. I personally use IDLE. Hope this helpful to people starting out in Python.

I'd like to suggest (if it isn't already listed somewhere):

Python Tips, Tricks, and Hacks

Which was brought up a few months ago on a topic, it has come in very useful.

One particular resource i would like to share with all is the MIT 6.00 Intro to Computer Science & Programming, which uses python. Under MIT OpenCourseWare, all the lectures are available on MIT youtube channel with handouts and associative study materials. Here is the play list for this course -

I might suggest the videos from talks of past Pycons found here:
pycon2010
pycon2009

By the nature of that conference this is not beginner stuff. But there are some insightful gems hidden there for the intermediate pythonist.

This link showed up on HN today: 6.006: Introduction to Algorithms - Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

It's an intro algorithms course obviously, but all of the code is in Python. I thought it would be good to add to the list!

This is a pretty neat site-- similar to Project Euler, but this site is entirely Python based and has a number of problems ranging from beginner to advanced.

There's also a great looking Django tutorial at Udemy. I'd expect more Python tutorials there as time goes on.... I might even make one when I have the time :)

There will be some repeats on this list, but I thought it might be useful to gather together some links for python exercises. The higher links should be python-specific and the lower ones not.
