Leeds University at PyConUK 2008

Tony Jenkins and Nick Efford from Leeds University gave an excellent talk at PyConUK on their experiences of teaching Python as an introductory programming language which seems to be very similar to our efforts at Coventry. Tony and Nick managed to raise pass rates, inspire some fantastic coursework, have fun and generally kick ass. Great news for Python and even better news for a future generation of students. You can see some more of their work in ITALICS.
