Where to start reading
Using the Navigation menu (under Tux the penguin at the right side), you can browse for an interesting chapter and start reading there. Unlike a physical book, there is no fixed order of pages. Some parts of the wiki however, like the pygame part or the goblins-tutorial, are structured into ordered “steps” with ascending numbers.
