    What are some recommended Python communities?

    #python on freenode/oftc can be decent, assuming the people from #twisted aren't in "use twisted for everything" mode

    There's also a much less active board, but one filled with good members at www.sourcereview.net (and a majority of the members there are pythonistas like myself). Most of us used to post at www.coderforums.com so there are a bunch of good python posts archived there as well.

    I rescently came across a very active Python forum at http://dbforums.com/f97/

    There are also a few mixed forums around but you don't see much Python activity in there i.e. http://www.devarticles.com/forum/for...p?s=&forumid=4

    Heh, that would be the comp.lang.python usenet newsgroup (the first link). But yeah, that's a good place to talk about Python as well, but a lot of the time it's pretty advanced stuff.

    I kinda suspected but i wasn't 100%, this the same group you can access though google's comp.lang.python group? I've only been reading the stuff on there for a week or too but there seems to be a few very nooblish questions too , all in all though, seems to be more advanced stuff but still a good read
