Nice job!
It makes me realize that studying Python is not just fun but also an 
opportunity to get paid!
Bad for me because I'm just a beginner. I started with Python and Django 
a year ago! ;)

I read the basic concepts of several languages when I was a student: 
Basic, Pascal, C, Assembly language for x86 processor, then some basic 
concepts of OOP, then PHP and I found Python is so natural and easy to 
start with as they say in tutorials.

I'm sure you will find someone soon, Mr. Rowley.
Good luck!!!
