...easy to program in, but hard to program when you want your programs to run at useful speed.

I'm currently fighting with gtfs convertor for timetab (was running overnight; and that's after I spent yesterday speeding it up 30 times or so; still not done). And yes, I realize that Python is probably not best language for weather nowcasting...

Are there some books / online things one should read to learn Python? Or is there some different language I should be using? (Yes, I like the language. No, I don't like whitespace-based syntax. No, I don't the fact that I have to actually test the application to discover typos in variable names.)
