    Does anyone know if there are any interactive python GUIs for Linux with a similar functionality to what MATLAB offers?

    Your best bet is PyCharm, not much interactive, but cool enough.

    Do you know if it has a variables editor like MATLAB? That's basically what I need, the main issue I've got at the moment is I'm playing with large numpy arrays where it's very useful to be able to see in real time what's being written to them, which I can do in MATLAB but can't really do with python.

    There you go:

    I still think PyCharm is better, I am not sure if it has variable editors, don't even know if that's possible, but people seem to be suggesting Spyderlib does.

    I don't have any experience with MATLAB, but check out IPython. It might be what you want.

    The internet is your friend.

    You can find books on it, videos, tutorials. There's loads.

    If you prefer it being hands on, then try codecademy. It's a good place to learn the basics and syntax etc.

    I'd also recommend MITOpenCourseware lectures in programming. They use python to introduce you to computer science concepts

    Well I'm at the moment learning Html code and will learn all the other code as well i.e c++, java, python etc... once I'm finished with Html

    Unless you want a job in designing websites don't bother with HTML, it won't teach you anything you need to know for programming, go straight onto programming languages
