It’s been a while since I have done any interesting Python links. I quit for a while because these things take a while to put together and few seemed interested, but I’ll give it another go. This week has a really interesting article on Python and robots. Jesse Noller has a fun article where he collects various Python stories too (I nabbed a couple of his picks for mine too because he was right: they are interesting!)
- Building a face-tracking robot (Headroid1) with Python in an afternoon
- Python Debugging; Embarrassment, Contracts and Nothing is private (Jesse Noller)
- Nothing is Private: Python Closures (and ctypes) – Michael Foord
- namedtuple and exec() by Kristján Valur
- Both PyTexas and PyCon Japan are calling for papers so if you like talking about Python, get in on the action now!
- mock 0.7.2 and PyDev 2.1.0 were both released recently.
- Quick and Easy Debugging in Python by Jeet Sukumaran
- Teaching (and learning) Python by Ned Batchelder
- Filenames with accents by Ned Batchelder
If you think I missed something awesome that happened in the Python world recently, let me know in the comments and maybe I’ll add it next time. Thanks for your support!
