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

using urrlib and regular expressions, I scraped some data from a website that was actually useful. The code was ugly but it worked.

What would you like to learn in the Python world?

At the present, I'm torturing myself by learning Django and GeoDjango on my own and I can use all the help I can get.

Any particular areas of expertise outside of Python?

Not much expertise as far as programming or scripting languages; but I'm an enthusiastic novice with Open Sourse GIS such as OpenLayers, PostGIS, and Google Maps API for JavaScript


I'm currently a GIS Analyst on the Cape and I'm trying to expand my Python skills beyond ESRI's ArcGIS geoprocessing skills.I consider myself somewhere between a newb and a novice with Python.

What Michael S. is saying about this Meetup Group

I'm a Python beginner and It's a great group, gets me out of my cave every now and then. Just what I need to see whats going on.
