One other thing: if you're doing research on how people learn how to
program, you may want to speak with the edu-sig python newsgroup --- they
talk about material that may interest you as a researcher:


I'd better point out that there are more resources that you can look at
besides Python.  For example, the Scheme language community is a good
resource on this subject:


Scheme is one of the lisp-based AI languages, and by that heritage, may be
interesting for its symbolic processing capabilities.  Scheme also does a
lot of list stuff.  *grin*

Also, the language Prolog is all about pattern recognition, so perhaps it
might be interesting to you.

Good luck!
