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

I learned Python by reading my own book. I wrote the Java version of "How to Think Like a Computer Scientist". Jeff Elkner translated it into Python and that's how I learned Python.

What would you like to learn in the Python world?

I am waiting for an excuse to play with Raspberry Pi.

Any particular areas of expertise outside of Python?

Data analysis and engineering education.

Introduction

I teach computer science at Olin College. I use Python in several classes, and it is my go-to language for my own projects, including Swampy. I have written several books using Python, including Think Python, Think Stats and Think Complexity.

What Allen D. is saying about this Meetup Group
