The Python Brochure Project, an initiative by the Python Software Foundation, has released a preview of the brochure. The purpose of the Python Brochure is to make the Python language and its benefits and uses more widely known, among other things.
The contents of the Python Brochure are pretty interesting, IMO, and show how widely and diversely Python is being used worldwide by companies, governments and other organizations.
Python may even go to Mars in a few years! Not kidding - see the brochure.
Excerpt from the site:
[ The brochure showcases Python projects with great impact, fascinating aspect and interesting twist from all application spaces covering use cases in business, science, industry, education, media, government, public sector and charity. ]
You can get the Python Brochure preview (as a PDF file). Scroll a bit down the page if you need to (depending on your monitor size), to see the download link.
I just downloaded it and scanned through it, and it looks quite good.
A minor nitpick is that I wish that they would have made it a single-column PDF, but that is my personal preference.
Update: Just realized that the two-column format is more suitable for printing (if the columns come on opposing pages), and brochures are printed ... Still wish there was a single-column version for computer viewing, though.
