We've been offering Intro to Webdev (every Thursday at 7pm), and it takes a turn onto the serpentine road of Python programming. Python is a language that can be used in Web development and in desktop application programming. It is used in education, scientific research, gaming, and more. Some educators argue that Python is the best first language for teens because of its simplicity and versatility. Try it out and decide for yourself.
