The Python Challenge is not for beginners

At least from what I've seen. I say this as I had to solve challenge 1 without the aid of Python (due to the fact that I had no knowledge of what was required). Is this intentional? (I'm just wondering for curiositys sake)

I don't think so
With a such challenge, you'll need modules you don't know, so you will have to learn how tu use them if you want to solve the riddle, to me it's an interesting way to learn Python

more for folks who already know some programming

I found that many of the things I found easy were do to recognizing things like file formats, and hex code conventions which I have picked up by working with other languages.

Since it's a brain teaser on two levels I think it's a good way to become accustomed to a new language, and learn about some of the libraries. I would probably not want to use it to learn to program from scratch.
