Other Ideas

These ideas are from other sources, not from the feedback forms:

  • Creating Command Line Tools in Python
  • Using Cheese Shop to Share Modules
  • Python 3000 Idioms (not migrating to P3K, how should our thinking change). This may be more suited to a presentation than a tutorial.
  • Intermediate Python (Iterators, Decorators, other various topics).
  • YAML
