I saw a discussion about "Is Python dying?" on the mailing list some months ago. That time I decided to write an article about Python in a paper. Now the article was published in the CHIP Magazine in Hungary yesterday. The title is The friendly snake. I made a HTML version of that http://www.cab.u-szeged.hu/~h532851/cikk/index.htm. It was written on the base of the FAQ, interviews, articles about Python and other languages (Perl, Rebol) and my experience.
Shortly about Python
What language is that?
Installing of Python
Documentation and examples
Learning the language
Writing and running of Python programs Life of Python Some interesting developments
Hungary is not a big country (10 million inhabitants), and not everybody is a programmer. I put a counter on the main page http://www.cab.u-szeged.hu/~h532851/python.htm to see the interest.
I hope it helps Python to be known better.
