Hi Hélène --
Yes I recall your discussions. You may already have checked out some
of my Python-related writings here:
A backdoor straight to my code, if you don't want to dig through any essays is:
One thing I specialize in is getting Python modules to spit out scene
description language for the ray tracing program POV-ray (povray.org).
I also work with VPython a lot (vpython.org). Having polyhedra
stored in sqlite3 and retrieving them in Python for visual display is
good exercise in using a DB.
In my curriculum we work backward from wanting to understand RSA (the
cryptographic algorithm) so there's some scaffolding having to do with
prime and composite numbers.
Right here in this archive there's a lot of buried treasure. Gregor's
rendition of a Ron Resch transformation using turtle art comes to mind
