    I already know Java m C++ and few other languages. Now I want to learn python. Which website will you suggest? If not, should I buy a book and learn it by myself?

    I suggest take something you've written in Java and C++ and port it to Python.
    Once you've learnt one programming language learning a new one is primarily learning syntax and how various concepts are implemented in that language.

    As for specific websites - GIYF
    The Python documentation - Getting Started, Tutorial and the Reference
    Codecademy
    http://www.learnpython.org/
    https://learnpythonthehardway.org/book/
    https://www.reddit.com/r/learnpython/
    Online

    You only learn programming by writing code. I suggest you compile a list of projects and start doing them in your new language.

    Start with codecademy, then I'd recommend Python Programming for the Absolute Beginner (a lot more so than learnpythonthehardway). A good resource to put it all into practise is codewars, or if you want something more intellectually stimulating try project euler.
