Welcome. This is the inaugural post for a collection of odds and ends (probably mostly odds) relating to the process of learning (and teaching) Python. I’ve been programming for 20 years and teaching programming for over half that time, and a proponent of Python since 2000. I’m also working on an upcoming book on Python for a well-known series by a well-know tech publisher. (More of that later )
My hope is that this blog will generate some discussion and that it will be useful both to the readers and to me. There is a movement in education circles called “Writing Across the Curriculum” which talks quite a bit about the benefits of “writing to learn”. If nothing else, that should work.
