"ActiveState & O'Reilly & Assoc. partner on unique open content effort."

"ActiveState, the leader in open source programming languages, and O'Reilly & Associates Inc., the premier technology book publisher, have partnered on the first of its kind collaborative programming book, the Python Cookbook. The cookbook will be a repository of rigorously reviewed Python recipes that have been contributed by the Python community for the community, which will be freely available for download."

"I'm very glad to be part of this community effort," said Guido van Rossum, the creator of Python. "This fills a need in the Python community for a reviewed, centralized repository of Python solutions and examples."

"The Python Cookbook will be freely available for review and use from the ActiveState website. As a community effort, it is different from any other project. The book will be a compilation of recipes contributed by the Python community, along with examples and recommended solutions by core Python contributors. It is intended to be a handy reference for programmers of all levels."
