The Sugar Desktop and the majority of the Sugar activities are written in
Python, so it would make sense to focus there. (Sugarizer and Music Blocks
are JavaScript and hence would not be appropriate topics for this venue.)

To me the thing that is most interesting is the scaffolding we built into
Sugar to expose the underlying Python code to our users (e.g., view source)
and to encourage them to explore on their own (the copy mechanism that
gives them them their own copy of a an activity to modify, Pippy, which is
a Python playpen and can be used to create new Sugar activities, and Turtle
Blocks, that provides a Python version of anything they write in the Logo
block language. Also, the IRC activity, which invites newbie developers to
follow the discussions of seasoned developers. All of these are topics I
touched upon in my 2013 talk at PyCon.
