I am a 20+ career IT admin with barely any programming background (just academic) and finally have to face up to reality to train/learn some form of scripting language. It seems Python is a good choice for most the reviews I've read.

Can anyone suggest a site, be it subscription or not, that has a courses and/or how to's for seasoned professionals that you can think of? I do appreciate your assistance.
