Today we have Anton Novosyolov (@ForeverYoung_ru) joining us as our PyDev of the Week! Anton is from Russia and has been using Python for a number of years. You can see some what he’s been up to via his github account. Let’s spend a few moments getting to know Anton better!


I recently stumbled upon the fact that is promoting Python as a programming language worthy of learning. Basically the article recommends that scientists should learn Python. There’s an interesting link which states that MIT is teaching Python as an introductory Computer Science course.

Anyway, the article talks about Python wonderful community and its rich education resources. There’s also a link to another Nature article about the IPython notebook! I thought the article was really interesting. Check it out!

Today, CodeEval announced that Python retained the #1 spot for the fourth year in a row! CodeEval is a fun website where you can do coding challenges in popular programming languages. It will rate how will you do and you can see yourself in its rankings. Anyway, their statistics about the programming languages they support are quite interesting. It’s always fun to see how well Python is doing too.

This week we have A. Jesse Jiryu Davis (@jessejiryudavis) joining us as our PyDev of the Week. I came to know about Jesse through his articles about Python on his blog. He is also employed at MongoDB. Jesse is also a contributor to several Python-related projects, such as pymongo. Let’s spend some time learning more about our fellow Pythoneer!



This week, we welcome Ivelin Demirov as our PyDev of the Week. Ivelin is the author of Learn Javascript Visually and has recently completed a successful Kickstarter for his next book, Learn Python Visually. Let’s spend some time getting to know Ivelin!



Yesterday I posted about PyImageSearch Gurus computer vision Kickstarter and then I came across another semi-related Kickstarter. This one is for Machine vision with Python using an OpenMV Cam. It uses MicroPython (Python for microcontrollers) to control a camera on a circuit board. This project can be used with an Arduino, mbed or other microcontroller over I2C, Serial, or SPI protocols. I believe the Raspberry Pi falls into one or more of the latter categories.

They haven’t reached their goal yet, but they have almost a month left to raise the funds. You can check our their project here.

I’ve actually never heard of this guy, but the fellow behind the pyimagesearch blog has created a Kickstarter for a computer vision subscription course. His name is Adrian Rosebrock and his Kickstarter was funded in 25 minutes! His course covers a lot of different topics in computer vision and sounds really interesting. You should definitely check it out, especially if you’re in this field.

Andrea Gavana is this week’s PyDev of the Week. He has been quite active in the wxPython project both as a contributor of original widgets and a great help to many of the people who have asked questions on the wxPython mailing lists. I’ve known him for quite a while. Let’s see what he has to say!


This week’s PyDev is Tim Golden. He is a member of the Python Software Foundation and a Python core developer. Tim is also a moderator or owner of several Python mailing lists. In April 2013, Tim was the recipient of the Python Community Service Award “for his work on supporting the Windows Management Interface in Python and supporting that code and Windows users generally on comp.lang.python.” He blogs from time to time and I would recommend checking his writings out. Finally, Tim is the author of several Python modules for Windows, which you can read about here.

Let’s spend some time getting to know him better.


This week we have Doug Hellman (@doughellman) as our PyDev of the Week.  Doug is the author of the Python Module of the Week series as well as the book, The Python Library by Example. Let’s find out what he has to say!
