I think that the benefit of tutorials in magazines is that they're far more
likely to be current than most things you'll find in a basic Google search;
usually tutorials you find online are massively outdated and irrelevant if
you're running any current distros/packages. Sometimes Google's 'In the last
x months/years' option down the left can help, but I've found it's hit and

In my case, I've been trying to find some more current tutorials and info
for SciPy (Python's science/engineering library), but most tutorials I've
found were written for older versions of the library, or older versions of
Python, and don't work in Python 2.7/SciPy 0.8.0 (I know SciPy is only
officially compiled for Pyth 2.6 to date, but I've managed to find one for
2.7 that seems to work). Most disappointing.
