We are the editors of the NewHoo section of Python
(http://www.newhoo.com/Computers/Programming_Languages/Python/). We're just
building, but we want this niche of the net to be THE Python information.
To this end, the following have been done:
1) Deleted outdated links
2) Updated links and descriptions
3) Added new subcategories
b) Documentation and Tutorials
c) Embedded Python
d) Modules (for the BIG modules like PIL, etc. and for pages that
have collections of modules)
e) Tools (e.g. PTUI)
4) Gave proper recognition to great companies utilitizing Digicool
(http://www.digicool.com) and Caligari (http://www.caligari.com/) by
marking them as COOL
1) Finish re-categorizing everything
2) Put together a sub-category for people who are brand-spanking-new to
Python so they can quickly get a good 'feel' of the language. Items
included would be links to simple source code, why Python's better than
everything else [wink], introductory documentation, cool things you can
easily do with python (to whet appetites), etc.
3) Add sub-category "Advocacy/In the news"?
General Things We Want to Avoid:
1) Having 1000s of links
a) If you have several modules on your site, submit your URL of the
page where your modules are based and in the description you (or we) will
list the modules therein.
3) Replacing python.org
a) Ideally, the NewHoo section would have only one link in each
subcategory-each link leading to a correlating section at python.org that
has (nearly) complete listings of anything wanted or needed in that
subsection. If the python.org webmaster would like to get together with me,
I'd love to help coordinate!
What we ask of you:
1) If you find something valuable that is not at the NewHoo section, write
us so we write it up.
a) especially - good source/docs/tutorials, good modules, embedded uses
b) are you doing something on the fringe of technology and want us
to help publicize? drop us a line.
2) If you find a dead link or some inaccurate info, write us so we can get
it fixed. Bad information is frustrating!
3) Support Python and PSA in any way that you can!
We appreciate your time and support of all things Python!
