Nice guide from Make for new Pi users getting acquainted with python.
You’ll create a very simple counting program using Python. Python is considered an “interpreted language,” which means that you can write a program or script and execute it directly rather than compiling it into machine code. Interpreted languages are a bit quicker to program with, and Python comes with a few side benefits of its own. For example, in Python you don’t have to explicitly tell the computer whether a variable is a number, a list, or a string; the interpreter figures out the data types when you execute the script.
