2009 Meme

Response to the 2009 meme that Tarek started.

In response to Tarek's meme

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

    Sphinx. Sphinx is really super. It makes writing and publishing technical documentation less painful by an order of magnitude than it used to be. I'm actually not sure this wasn't a 2008 discovery, but I really started using it "in anger" on my own projects in 2009.

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

    Testing using statement coverage (via Ned Batchelder's coverage). Maintaining 100% statement coverage gives me a lot more confidence about refactoring old code.

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

    Repoze (including BFG). I wrote the lion's share of BFG and contributed to various other Repoze-related pieces of software. I also did a good bit of work on Karl (a collaboration system based on BFG and other Repoze software). I also did some work on Formish/Schemaish, Pylons/Routes, WebOb, and Sphinx.

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

    Reddit's Python section, and the blog entries tossed at me by Planet Python.

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

    No idea. I just take it as it comes.
