All Things Pythonic
Google Highly Open Participation Contest
by Guido van van Rossum
November 28, 2007
The Google Open Source Office is outdoing itself with a new contest aimed at a younger generation of coders: students ages 13 or older.


I'm not going to summarize the Blog entry -- read it for yourself. Or go straight to the Contest page. Needless to say, the Python Software Foundation is participating; see the Python contest page.

About the Blogger

Guido van Rossum is the creator of Python, one of the major programming languages on and off the web. The Python community refers to him as the BDFL (Benevolent Dictator For Life), a title straight from a Monty Python skit. He moved from the Netherlands to the USA in 1995, where he met his wife. Until July 2003 they lived in the northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC with their son Orlijn, who was born in 2001. They then moved to Silicon Valley where Guido now works for Google (spending 50% of his time on Python!).
