Welcome Ben! Jackson gave you a great overview of what's going on. Since 
you know python, might I suggest playing around with autopilot and try 
your hand at writing some autopilot tests? Start with this video and 
give it a whirl, when you are ready, we'll point you at some tests that 
need to be written :-)

The video is indepth, and there are certainly text guides as well, which 
can also work. Have a look at these as well

I look forward to working with you!
