Playful Python is now one year old 🎉

When we started this site in April last year, we felt the need for a site that covers intermediate and advanced Python usage. There are hundreds of tutorials that teach the basics of python: variables, conditionals, loops, functions and so on. But that is also where they stop.

That is why we started Playful Python. Over the last twelve months, we have written 53 articles – an average of one every week – on intermediate and advanced Python topics.

A New Monthly Newsletter

Today, we are happy to announce that we are ready to solve one more problem that every python developers faces: Tracking the python ecosystem.

Python is known for its vast ecosystem of tools, libraries and frameworks. It is an impossible task to keep on top of everything. So we are announcing another free product: A monthly newsletter that rounds up the news from the python ecosystem.

The newsletter be sent on the last week of every month and will contain python news, highlight interesting libraries, and share articles from around the web.

While the newsletter is free, it is subscriber only. If you are reading this article as an email, you are already a subscriber. Otherwise click this link to subscribe (it's free!).
