I am teaching Python at the Space Telescope Science Institute
on Thurs/Fri this week (Feb 8-9). There will be 20+ students
in attendance, most of whom will never have seen Python before
(although all have previous programming experience). This is
a great opportunity to field-test new syntax for iteration,
membership tests, and the like, if interested parties can help
me put together questions.
I have set up a mailing list at:
to handle this discussion (since putting together a questionnaire
doesn't belong on python-dev). Please join up and send suggestions;
we've got the rest of today, Tuesday, and Wednesday morning...
