Python


Application development for the OLPC laptop: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/edu/l-dw-linux-xo-python-i.html?S_TACT=105AGX01&S_CMP=HP ... A meaty PDF about programming the XO in Python. You need to register to get it (free).

OLPC Activity Handbook: http://christoph-d.blogspot.com/2008/01/olpc-activity-handbook.html ... Similar to the PDF from IBM, but you don't need to register, and it might be even more comprehensive and easier to understand.

Squeak / eToys


Smalltalk development on XO: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Smalltalk_Development_on_XO ... Turning eToys into full-fledged Squeak.

Squeak By Example: http://www.iam.unibe.ch/~scg/SBE/ ... Free, downloadable ebook teaching Squeak from the beginning. Very good. You can also buy a printed copy.

Miscellaneous


Six Hour Startup: http://www.sixhourstartup.com/ ... the original "let's get together and crank out a program in an afternoon" group, conveniently enough at Saturday House, where the SeaXO user group meets. We can learn from them, but I don't think we need to copy them slavishly.

Sugarize: http://lists.laptop.org/pipermail/devel/2008-January/009387.html ... Put any Linux program on the XO menu at the bottom of the screen.
