Good and Easy tutorials for python hacking

I'm learning computer science with C++ in college and can use python, C# to write simple program or game with GUI, still I know I'm not deep experienced developer.

They say study programming by hacking with python is best way to be skilled.
I don't know where to start. So I guess I need tutorial for this. Codecademy was very good when I was learning python. So, If there are tutorial sites similar to Codecadmy, please tell me. Or simple webpages or video tutorials are also good. What I want to know is where to start leaning how to hack and secure with python.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The way I learned Python was from a free class called “PythonLearn“ from http://www.pythonlearn.com/index.php  The class is also available from Coursera for free and is called Programming for Everybody (Python) https://www.coursera.org/course/pythonlearn this is a great class.

More information on the class

The HTML version of the book is free (the link above). If you want more hand holding or more in-depth video support, you can buy the entire video course for $29 at the same site.

Once you get out of this level, your required "tutorials" are going to be more of a project / goal oriented item. For example, if you need to know how to write a TCP/IP server in Python, you'll probably need to find some example code on the web (and there may be a tutorial or two on this somewhere), and then rely on your basics and fundamentals that you gain from doing the learnpythonthehardway.org course.

Once you get your feet wet... once you cut your teeth, once you can get through the first 50 exercises here, you'll need to actually code to get better at it. You'll never stop learning python (or C, C++, PHP, whatever you code in). Never stop trying to learn either.

I can recommend "Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python" from edX - it's an online course (like Coursera), teaches you programming skills using Python. Medium difficulty for anyone without programming experience: https://www.edx.org/node/5626#.VH-ArTHF_RM

I think college is not a good way to learn programming.  Self-study with a book is the best way to actually learn.  I don't think employers care about degrees for programmers.  They want true skill.  They ask questions in interviews to determine candidates' skill.

Agreed. Self study is better than college learning. Still learning with Internet is familiar than studying with a book.
In fact I wanted some basic Security tutorials with Python, but Thank you guys, I checked those sites and not bad for me. Still I guess I have to study English more haha :X
