Just to be more specific, I was hoping to have the Litvins text listed
before my lobbying summit meeting in Sherwood.  That's all water under
the bridge.


I've explained to my peers that edu-sig page is moribund at this time,
frozen, much as it was during my tenure (because I failed to make
transition from CVS to SVN).  Much of the text is still as I left it,
with some rearrangements:


There's also the new title Python Programming in Context which is of
direct interest to educators.


BTW, I wonder how this stuff reads in Arabic (thinking about our
mirror...  Tag?):

More and more, Python is making inroads at all levels in education.
Python offers an interactive environment in which to explore
procedural, functional and object oriented approaches to problem
solving. أكثر وأكثر ، بيثون تحرز تقدما على جميع المستويات في مجال
التعليم. بيثون عروض تفاعلية البيئة التي لاستكشاف الإجرائية والفنية
وجوه النهج الموجهة نحو حل المشاكل. Its high level data structures and
clear syntax make it an ideal first language, while the large number
of existing libraries make it suitable to tackle almost any
programming tasks. ارتفاع البيانات على مستوى الهياكل وتركيب واضح جعله
مثاليا اللغة الأولى ، في حين أن عددا كبيرا من المكتبات الموجودة جعلها
مناسبة للتعامل مع أي برمجة المهام تقريبا.

Edu-sig, through its mailing list , provides an informal venue for
comparing notes and discussing future possibilities for Python in
education. ايدو - سيج ، من خلال قائمة البريد الإلكتروني ، ويوفر مكانا
غير رسمي لمقارنة الملاحظات ومناقشة امكانيات بيثون في المستقبل في مجال
التعليم. Its origins trace to Guido van Rossum's pioneering Computer
Programming for Everybody (CP4E) , a grant proposal accepted by DARPA,
and which provided a modicum of funding in 1999. تتبع أصولها إلى غيدو
فان Rossum الرائد الكل لبرمجة الحاسوب (CP4E) ، ومنحة مقترح DARPA قبلها
، والتي توفر حدا أدنى من التمويل في عام 1999.

Membership includes, but is not limited to, educators using Python in
their courses, independent developers, and authors of educational
materials. Discussion focuses on Python use at all levels, from
beginning to advanced applications. تضم في عضويتها ، على سبيل المثال
لا الحصر ، والمربين باستخدام بيثون في مناهجها ، والمطورين المستقلين ،
والمؤلفين من المواد التعليمية. بيثون مناقشة تركز على استخدام على جميع
المستويات ، من اوله الى التطبيقات المتقدمة.

My apologies to those not getting the right unicode translation.  I'm
thinking on a diversity list, we should expect more stuff like this,
not less, over time.
