Hey guys! I’ve had the pleasure to be in the presence of some of the main brains at a local code shop called Work For Pie, and over that time I’ve got to learn quite a bit about Python. Sometimes, it can feel like I am struggling to tread water, so I just wanted to share some of the resources I have come across in my quest to be ale to say, “I can Python!”.
Here are 5 free ebooks on learning Python that might help you out. I have included books for Python 2 as well as Python 3. Feel free to leave any links you have in the comments section if you know of any other resources like this. Enjoy!

I was thinking of my friends at /r/Customization when I decided to review this program suggested to me by one of our readers from Facebook by the name of Sidnex.
I used Nexus the last week or so, and I must say, it really grows on you. With a little tweaking in the options, I was even able to soften the austere color scheme.
The thing I like the most about this file manager is that it also does checksums directly from the browser, itself. This is pretty good for someone like me who routinely downloads large ISO images for operating system installs, where a few misplaced ones and zeros can make all the difference.
If you want to try out Nexus File Manager, check out the web site and download a copy for yourself! Thanks for the suggestions Sidnex!!

This morning I was cruising Twitter getting my daily news-update, and I ran across a rather bold claim.
Lifehacker had tweeted that Dashlane was an app+service combo that claimed to deliver emails securely, and even offering a self-destruct feature for added paranoia I decided to give it a try.
I didn’t know if this was a phone app or a desktop app, but was pleased to find options for most modern platforms. I downloaded the Windows 7 binary for the program, and set up an account.
I was up and running pretty quickly, and was prompted to fill in a few blanks. After this, it automatically imported all of my cached data in my browser sessions.
I must admit, I was only interested in the self-destructing emails, so the other features caught me off guard, as the messaging is only a minor feature in the set of offerings. The most notable features were the form auto-complete, and the emphasis on cached credential management, which is all done from a locally encrypted container.
I fired up the ‘Notes’ feature, and sent myself an encrypted self destructing email to my phone, and it arrived in the usual amount of time. What arrived was an email with a short note from the sender, a link, and an encryption key to open the message. I copied the key and clicked the link, and it brought me to a dashlane website page and allowed me to locally decrypt my message.
All in all, I’d say this one is a keeper! 4/5 stars.
