New Year's Python Meme 2014

The beginning of the year is the time for the "Python meme". I think no turtle has ever participated to this "game" before, so let's enjoy the #2014pythonmeme!

Since some years, at the beginning of the year, it is common for Pythonista to answer a short questionnaire. It seems the whole thing is Tarek's fault... :)

What’s the coolest Python application, framework or library you discovered this year?

Pate plugins made me switch back, after 4 years, from Eclipse+Pydev to Kate. I want to write my own plugins next year!

What new programming technique did you learn this year?

Convinced myself that almost anything in a web application should be traversable.

Which open source project did you contribute to the most this year? What did you do?

I participated to two Plone sprints. At the latest EuroPython I worked on the install.plone.dependencies script, at the Arnhem sprint I focused on the PLIP "removal of selected portal tools".

Which Python blogs, websites, or mailing lists did you read the most this year?

I try to keep myself up-to-date reading feeds. After Google Reader departure (T_T) I switched to feedly.

My subscriptions include, among the others, the various planets (Python, Plone, Plone ItaliaKDE, ...). Lately I try to take an eye over the PyPI feed, even if often the flow is just overwhelming.

I also like to stay up to date with the political situation in Italy, science and with motor sports (#GetWellSoonMSC).

What are the top three things you want to learn next year?

I would like to...

  • ... crunch the bits of the new technologies that are making the Plone revolution (Mockup, Diazo, Dexterity)
  • ... inspect new techniques to deploy and manage my applications and servers
  • ... do something with Node.js and some node package.

 

What is the top software, application or library you wish someone would write next year?

A nice application to manage an Android device from a Linux PC.
