Internet Relay Chat
For short questions, you can get immediate help by visiting the #python channel on the Internet Relay Chat server irc.freenode.net. You will need to first register your nickname with FreeNode, using the nickname setup instructions. You should also read the FAQ for the #python channel.
German speakers can use the #python.de channel on either irc.freenode.net or IRCnet. The channel on irc.freenode.net is much more active than the one on IRCnet.
IRC clients for many platforms can be found in the Internet Relay Chat (IRC) Help Archive.
