Halfway through NaNoWriMo

Well I’m halfway through NaNoWriMo and everything is going pretty well so far, but today I was surfing the net and looking at some python stuff and I must admit I miss programming in python in my free time.

While writing a novel in one month is fun and all it’s also pretty stressful and sometimes you just want to relax in the coolness of some neat PyGTK or PyGame application, oh and PyGame 1.8 is being released on December for everyone that wants to use PyGame with Python 2.5.

Oh well back to writing, but before I go here are some interesting links:

  1. How to Think Like a Computer Scientist: Learning with Python
  2. PySoy: a high-level python game module
  3. NuFox: a python XUL toolkit written ontop of the Twisted Networking Framework and Nevow.

Well now I really should get back to writing, happy coding!

Python at Google

I Caught this while browsing the web and thought python lovers might find it interesting. It’s basically Matt Harrison’s write up of Greg Stein’s keynote at the SDForum Python Meeting.

Greg is an an engineering manager at Google and his talk focuses on his previous experience using Python at work and how Google uses python.

It’s got some interesting information, so you should go give it a read:
