New Year’s Python Meme


It’s a little late, but I’m participating in Tarek Ziadé’s Python Meme (via Richard Jones):

  1. What’s the coolest Python application, framework or library you have discovered in 2009?

    Google App Engine. I’d known of it before, but hadn’t tried it until early this year when I started to work on LibraryHippo.

  2. What new programming technique did you learn in 2009?

    I’m not sure if this counts as a technique, but I recently found (and found a use for) Jean-Paul S. Boodhoo’s Static Gateway Pattern. At the Day Job, we have a lot of hard-coded dependencies and reliance on well-known static methods for authorization. The Static Gateway Pattern made it easy to provide an injectable implementation without rewriting the whole application. I expect it to continue to be useful, at least until we take the time to introduce a full Inversion of Control container.

  3. What’s the name of the open source project you contributed the most in 2009? What did you do?

    I didn’t, really. Unless you count LibraryHippo. I’ve an interest in working on Noda Time, but I haven’t managed to yet.

  4. What was the Python blog or website you read the most in 2009?

    Word Aligned

  5. What are the three top things you want to learn in 2010?
