Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Jan 13)

Discussion in 'Python' started by Gabriel Genellina, Jan 13, 2010.

  1. QOTW: "... if I want to know something new (be it a computer language or
    anything else, such as economics, history, science) I skip the introductory
    material and go directly to the discussion, to the issues. This is for me
    the most effective and interesting way of learning something new. And if
    there is too much consensus, I don't take the topic seriously...:) This is
    the reason why I like your summaries so much." - Marko Loparic, on his
    judgment of 'Python-URL!'
