What's the coolest thing you've done with Python?

Get away from, C++ and Java. Before converting to python I was seriously considering reverting completely to C, which could accomodate my preference for dynamic programming further corrupted by aspect oriented programming (AOP). Python allows me to do both.

What would you like to learn in the Python world?

Somehow get an idea of the extent of what's available.

Any particular areas of expertise outside of Python?

formal verification, formal proof systems, digital system simulation, parsing, linguistics

Introduction

Have been coding with python since 2006 after evaluating perl, php, and ruby. No regrets. I am an exile from electronic design automation EDA. I am exploring applying what I learned there in new applications.

What mak is saying about this Meetup Group

Fun. Informative. Open
