Advocacy


The PyDev of the Week this week is Tim Roberts. While we’ve never met in person, he’s helped me a time or two on several of the Python 3rd party mailing lists, such as wxPython, Reportlab and (I think) PyWin32. He runs his own consulting business and can be contacted by email at the following: timr@probo.com. Let’s spend some time getting to know him!

Code Condo recently named this blog, Mouse Vs Python, as one of the “11 Must-Read Blogs for Python Developers”. The article is worth a read as it lists a number of other really good websites, such as pydanny’s and Doug Hellman’s. I really enjoyed Effbot’s when I was learning Python, however I don’t think Mr. Lundh keeps it updated any more, so I’m not sure how I feel about that one. Anyway, be sure to check the article out if you need some ideas for what other Python blogs to read.

This week, we have Brian Curtin (@brian_curtin) as our PyDev of the Week. He is a core developer of the Python language and the primary editor of the Python Software Foundation’s blog. Let’s spend some time getting to know more about Brian.
