 * 2009: Python class for beginners: I used to co-maintain the forum for asynchronous python classes in Greek language: http://forum.ubuntu-gr.org/viewforum.php?f=55 - Several people helped and participated in the project (thank you people!). The project also led to the translation of the python book "[[http://www.swaroopch.com/notes/Python_el:%CE%A0%CE%B5%CF%81%CE%B9%CE%B5%CF%87%CF%8C%CE%BC%CE%B5%CE%BD%CE%B1|A byte of Python]]" (big thanks to the translators!!). The classes are still helpful, full of information and tips for beginners.
