Welcome to the PythonJournos wiki!

We're a community of journalists who help each other learn and use Python in our day-to-day work. This site contains basic info about getting started with Python, as well as code samples and tutorials.

We welcome journalists and non-journalists alike to join our discussions on the PythonJournos Google Group, as well as our LearningPython study group.

Lots of us also hang out on NICAR-L, a list-serv of somewhat nerdy journalists run by IRE.
