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

I wrote a game called, "The Olin Challenge," based on inside jokes and the culture at my school. I used the Pygame library ( and you could move a character around, interact with NPCs, collect objects, give objects to characters, complete missions, and generally do all the things that you're supposed to be able to do in a good 2D game.

What would you like to learn in the Python world?

Python for web! I'm a PHP programmer by trade, and I'd really love to do some Python web development.

Any particular areas of expertise outside of Python?

User Experience, User Interfaces, LAMP/PHP, JQuery, web development, mobile technology, some other things I can't remember...


Hey! I'm Ryan, or @Kludgist, as I'm sometimes known.
