Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Apr 5)

Discussion in 'Python' started by Cameron Laird, Apr 6, 2004.

  1. QOTW: "What is so nice about Python is that there are so many places
    on the user/scripter/programmer/computer-scientist spectrum where you
    can be and find Python to be a useful tool. This makes it very easy to
    build good collaborations between domain experts and 'real programmers'
    where both sides can use the same language and neither feels constrained
    or overwhelmed." - Roy Smith

    "In this setting I'd say that Java is a win, though I wouldn't recom-
    mend it in a setting where most people actually knew what they were
    doing." - Stefan Axelsson


    "The next version of Python will have a 'statistics' module"
    http://groups.google.com/groups?th=d913218a36d6317f

    Peter Hansen bests any of the deliberate April Fools' Day
    pranks with his "adverbial keywords" throw-away
    http://groups.google.com/groups?frame=left&th=8f108e196e1094cf

    Roger Binns tells at the executive level what Pythoneers should
    know about Java
    http://groups.google.com/groups?frame=left&th=99f40535ad1384c

    Frank Millman cleverly illustrates how much of a data store
    comes nearly for free with list comprehensions
    http://groups.google.com/groups?th=107f7f0add2877db

    David Goodger gives a personal account of PyCon DC 2004
    http://starship.python.net/~goodger/pycon_dc_2004/

    Armin Rigo launches a thread on performance dense with strong
    emotions and confusions, but also deep questions about engineering
    choices. Of course, any conversation that begins with attention
    to one of timbot's rewrites has a head start

    E ahora, en espanol: las PFP (?) de Python, gracias a Facundo

    The single most remarkable fact about Python GUI toolkits is
    how many different ones truly give good value. Even such apparent
    also-rans as pyXPCOM and PyGTK boast persuasive testimonials
    http://groups.google.com/groups?frame=left&th=1b399561311d8ddf

    How does one enumerate a lattice? Thomas Heller, simon place,
    Josiah Carlson, and Stephen Horne demonstrate that even simple
    problems have better and worse solutions--particularly when
    list comprehensions and generators are available

    Everything Python-related you want is probably one or two clicks away in
    these pages:

    Python.org's Python Language Website is the traditional
    center of Pythonia
    http://www.python.org
    Notice especially the master FAQ
    http://www.python.org/doc/FAQ.html

    PythonWare complements the digest you're reading with the
    marvelous daily python url
    http://www.pythonware.com/daily
    Mygale is a news-gathering webcrawler that specializes in (new)
    World-Wide Web articles related to Python.
    http://www.awaretek.com/nowak/mygale.html
    While cosmetically similar, Mygale and the Daily Python-URL
    are utterly different in their technologies and generally in
    their results.

    comp.lang.python.announce announces new Python software. Be
    sure to scan this newsgroup weekly.
