I'm looking to pick up basic web development by working through Programming Python's internet scripting chapters (especially the server-side scripting).
Question: when I'm attempting to learn the basics of being a webmaster, should I jump into a full LAMP (with Python instead of PHP)/Django implementation? Or do you recommend I learn the basics with simpler pieces (e.g. Python web-server pieces like CGIHTTPServer/ BaseHTTPServer, sqlite3, etc.)?
