The hard part about getting started with Python is not the language but the ecosystem. It’s easy to find good references on the Python language, but it’s harder to learn what packages are available, how to install them, etc. That was my experience, and Miz Nazim started with a similar observation in his article Python Ecosystem: An Introduction.
Maybe its always harder to learn a language’s ecosystem than the language itself. But I think this was the case for me with Python more than with other languages I’ve used. I wish I’d found Nazim’s article or something like it when I was learning Python.
