Please Welcome Joseph Mack to the TriZPUG list.

I became aware of what Joseph is doing through the TriLUG list.

Joseph volunteered to teach programming to some seventh graders.

The seventh graders demanded they be taught Python.

Joseph knows programming. But he didn't know Python.

But Python being what it is, simple, that didn't stop Joseph.

Joseph has put in a ton of work making this:

It tries to be language neutral, instead of pythonic, and starts with 
binary numbers.

I pointed Joseph at David Handy's book.
