On the contrary, DiveIntoPython.org is geared toward those already familiar
with programming, but need an introduction to concepts they may not be
familiar with. I would certainly never give it to someone who did not have
some programming background already.
As a C++ programmer, I skipped the portions explaining object oriented
languages, but concentrated on the sections covering the concepts of a
loosely-typed language. It was certainly better than grabbing a pocket
reference and not having that understanding of loosely-typed variables.
If you are a programmer, and you are not comfortable with either
object-oriented programming or loosely-typed languages, definitely reference
DiveIntoPython.org for help when getting started with Python.
