Top Ten Articles of 2011

Everyone likes retrospective articles. I’m not sure why, but lists just pull people in. Last year, my top ten list was pretty popular, so this year I’m going to do it again. This year I hit 247,901 visits and 345,452 page views over the course of the year compared with 137,727 visits and 213,814 page views last year.

Last time, I thought I’d get some articles written about other GUI toolkits during 2011, but I never really got into any. Instead, I wrote a lot of wxPython articles. As you can tell from the list above, they weren’t super popular with only one making the top ten. Maybe this year I’ll spread out a bit and actually look at some of the other GUI toolkits. I’m also planning to write more on the topics that made it into my top ten list two years running such as reportlab and SqlAlchemy. If you can think of anything involving those 3 topics that you’d like to know more about, feel free to ask in the comments and I’ll consider writing about it.

I hope you’re ready for another rocking year of Python programming. I know I am!
