- Don Watkins wrote about how he teaches kids Python on the Raspberry Pi. Stephan Avenwedde looked at different Python interpreters, while Mark Meyer explained how to turn your Python script into a command-line application.
- Writing web robots in Python has been popular for two decades. In 2022, articles about httpx and using Python
requestswith BeautifulSoup highlighted two new ways of collecting and analyzing data from websites.
- There has never been a more exciting time in packaging Python. Sumantro Mukherjee demonstrated how to package a new Python module in 4 steps, and I covered modern packaging tools.

Python is a fun language, but it's also a powerful language. You can enjoy Python as a beginner and as a pro, so break out your favorite text editor and start exploring this dynamic and multifaceted language. And have a Pythonic 2023!
