QOTW: "Python's value proposition is that it is a tool for grown ups." -- Mike
C. Fletcher

"A Pythonista trying to convince a world of Java heads to do it another way?
Your cries for sanity will be lost in the 'public static void'." -- Eric

    Dennis Lee Bieber, Aahz, and Jeff Epler all provide high
    signal-to-noise ratios in demonstrating how to begin to
    use threads
    For one example of the vistas available to those willing
    to look beyond conventional threading, recall David Mertz'

    Timbot illustrates how apparently simple thread use can go
    wrong with his "import deadlock" example

    Brian Kelley, Elaine Jackson, Robert Brewer, and Jesper Olsen
    show how good simple Python graph management can be

    Adult discussions of Pythonic performance center on an
    image-processing problem

    Robert Brewer aptly explains how to think about the applicability
    of regular expressions

    Duncan Smith automates Microsoft Word with Python

    Premshree Pillai offers a Web-based Python-coded "Tic Tac Toe"
    as a baseline for beginners in Python Web- and game-work.

Everything Python-related you want is probably one or two clicks away in
these pages:

    Python.org's Python Language Website is the traditional
    center of Pythonia
    Notice especially the master FAQ

    PythonWare complements the digest you're reading with the
    marvelous daily python url
    Mygale is a news-gathering webcrawler that specializes in (new)
    World-Wide Web articles related to Python.
    While cosmetically similar, Mygale and the Daily Python-URL
    are utterly different in their technologies and generally in
    their results.

    comp.lang.python.announce announces new Python software.  Be
    sure to scan this newsgroup weekly.

    Brett Cannon continues the marvelous tradition established by 
    Andrew Kuchling and Michael Hudson of intelligently summarizing
    action on the python-dev mailing list once every other week.

    The Python Package Index catalogues packages.

    The somewhat older Vaults of Parnassus ambitiously collects references
    to all sorts of Python resources.

    Much of Python's real work takes place on Special-Interest Group
    mailing lists

    The Python Business Forum "further[s] the interests of companies
    that base their business on ... Python."

    The Python Software Foundation (PSF) has replaced the Python
    Consortium as an independent nexus of activity.  It has official
    responsibility for Python's development and maintenance. 
    Among the ways you can support PSF is with a donation.

    Cetus collects Python hyperlinks.

    Python FAQTS

    The Cookbook is a collaborative effort to capture useful and
    interesting recipes.

    Among several Python-oriented RSS/RDF feeds available are
    For more, see
    The old Python "To-Do List" now lives principally in a
    SourceForge reincarnation.
