Welcome to The Python Papers. This journal, small though it is, represents
the careful efforts of a small group of Python enthusiasts who are keen to
form a better community in which developers may work.
As Editor-In-Chief, my role is manifold, but my goals are to improve the
level of connectedness of Python developers, and in so doing improve my own
The entire editorial board has put time into making this publication
something which will hopefully lead to a buildup of momentum, fuelled by the
enthusiastic involvement of others who find Python as exciting as we do.
The current issue contains one academic, peer-reviewed article, one industry
article, and a list of events coming up in Melbourne, Australia. We would
like to expand this list significantly. We offer our services in organising,
collating and reviewing submitted content such that Python developers around
the world may participate in the creation of something bigger than all of
us, for the benefit of all of us. It may be a small journal, a little thing
really, but all are welcome, and we look forward to getting to know our
readers through the written word.

For those of you looking to publish an academic paper as a part of
coursework or for interest's sake alone, we can offer a formal review
process which will meet those guidelines while preserving the goals of
freedom of information and community spirit.
Those who are using Python in their work may like to consider using the
journal as a means of expressing successes or frustrations with either the
language itself or specific applications. We may be able to offer code
reviews and style guides, and would be happy to hear about and help
propagate news of what is happening so that everyone can take an interest.
For those who would like a reliable source of information, The Python Papers
presents a unique and current view into the state of Python at large.
To all of you, welcome!
