This is a short list of some very smart people who have done some work on or are interested in PythonLanguage. Some are known to hang out on the comp.lang.python newsgroup, others are found in other places (like the PythonIrcChannel).
"Famous" python people and bots:
Clue: Go to a bookstore. Buy a book on Python. Read it.
Or save yourself the money and read the excellent: http://diveintopython.org/ (DiveIntoPython? doesn't exist anymore. See https://wiki.python.org/moin/BeginnersGuide?/Programmers for a list of tutorials for people who already know how to program)
SusannahWilliams? - I'll do the above things but I also have a question, python is better than VB, I get that, but is it as widely used and will it help me get a job as a programmer or something like that?
Hmm. Yes. Although not as widely used as VB, Python will help you get a job as a programmer and more importantly, to like your job as a programmer (which VB will not do).
You can work at google. How cool is that? ;-)
If by "get me a job as a programmer" you mean that people will see it on your resume and hire you, or that there's a large demand for Python programmers, I have to say I'm sorry but no. On the other hand, Python will make a you a better programmer. And writing code in Python is *fun*, something that VB isn't. If you are fortunate enough to get a job using Python, my congratulations (and envy).
Please add/move/remove yourself to/from the appropriate list!
