I think the pygeo idea is a decent one ;)
Truly, if there is anything I can do to help make that a reality, please let
me know. The documentation for pygeo is a problem. Mostly because I don't
really understand who I should be writing it for, and my efforts keeping
getting sidetracked on that account.
In the context of a real world situation - if you help me understand what
assumptions I can make about your students background - it might get me off
the dime, a bit.
comp 103: so I don't need to worry about presenting basic Python concpets as
part of my docs. That kind of thing.
Not a curriculum, certainly. But documentation that might at least "speak
to" your students , a bit.
Math students studying programming is my ideal audience, I would think.
I would hope they would interested in taking apart the code a bit, and even
maybe putting it back together - better.
