Want to try your hand at a new programming language without the hassle of downloading and installing it? Well, now you can with Python thanks to Sculpt. The project is still in an early phase, but they note that they intend to support as much of the language as possible (and full source code is available, if you’re interested).
If Python isn’t your game, why not try Ruby, Basic or even Logo? These would be a good way to get some practice in when you’re on the road! Does your favorite programming language have an online version?

CodePad.org has a much wider selection of languages, all on one site.
Very incomplete at this stage. A better example would be the IronPython web console (although it requires Silverlight)
If you are on a Mac, don’t forget that python (and perl, ruby, and perhaps others) come with the OS. Just fire up Terminal.app and get going!
