When Brian announced the release of the interactive Python Trinket almost exactly a week ago, we weren’t sure what the reception would be. In short, it’s been amazing. We were featured on reddit, Hacker News, and had the most Twitter mentions yet. Signups have been amazing and users are building out really exciting courses. We were able to use the technology to make plain old Google Sites into an interactive introduction to Python. This means that anyone with a website that accepts embedded widgets like ours can teach or learn the basics of Python before ever installing any software.
I’m excited for some big announcements coming up that will take these Python Trinkets to a new level. We can’t wait to see what you do with these new tools for teaching and learning code from your browser. Thanks again! If you haven’t yet, you can make your own here.
