Introduction to Python in Maya by Isaac Oster

This tutorial series introduces basic python functionality in the Maya environment. For artists and designers accustomed to thinking visually, Maya’s 3D environment is a great space to learn to script.

Each topic is described in short, concise chapters, without a lot of extra information. Larger projects sprinkled in to demonstrate tools discussed in previous chapters. This series is intended to introduce the uninitiated to how awesome scripting can be, and is intentionally narrow in its scope. There are many excellent resources available for those interested in a deeper look. The full 18 chapter series is available for 99 cents
