Are you interested in learning to program in Python? Codecademy now hosts a "Python for 3D artists" group.

Codecademy is an awesome website where anyone can learn to write code and get into grips with programming for free, in a gamified, motivating environment. The learning process is based on writing code and completing exercises, and you earn badges for completed tasks, courses and special projects.
The website now hosts quite a large number of python courses, that can kickstart anybodies python programming skills.
Recently, they also added a new feature - learning groups, so that users can discuss the materials, help each other, and keep track of each others progress (something that elevates the gamified learning experience from "single player" to "multiplayer" in a sense).
Since python is so important for 3D animation software, I proposed a group called "Python for 3D artists" and it was added to the list of groups today.
I think this is a really nice opportunity for any Blenderhead who wants to learn python in a group, to discuss it's animation oriented uses with other 3D artists, or even to create new tutorials that focus on 3D.
To join the group, you need to open a (free!) user on the Codecademy website.
To create a user, enter the codecademy website.
