Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Nov 7)

QOTW: "If you want to become a good Python programmer, you really need to
get over that 'I need a oneliner' idea." - Fredrik Lundh
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....10957173a20e73

"It is the shortsightedness of the Python core developers that keeps
the palindrome related functions and algorithms out of the standard
library." - Istvan Albert
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....6ce70ae0f4fe06
'Near the US capital? Hear Barry Warsaw introduce Python to
a public NASA audience:
http://isandtcolloq.gsfc.nasa.gov/fa...er/warsaw.html

Among the most important work going on in the Python world is
that of the sprints--the recent Duesseldorf one, for example:
http://codespeak.net/pipermail/pypy-...q4/003396.html

pyjamas is a toolkit which facilitates AJAX composition in Python:
http://pyjamas.pyworks.org/

Carl Banks is one of the people for whom timing is simple:
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....186617a253757/

In principle, Python is great for extending-and-embedding.
Each of these involves intimidatingly multiple aspects, though,
as we'll discuss over the next few weeks. Fredrik Lundh bounds
one of them: installation of an adequate development environment
under Windows:
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....65eb106cc7a8fc

PyParsing!? Sure, it's powerful, and pythonic, but is it really
appropriate to ... oh, I guess it is. Paul McGuire releases
another of his pedagogic salvoes (inadvertently?) devoted to
surprising things that can be PyParsed:
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....240a51e3777f0/
Notice the distinct approaches taken by Fredrik Lundh, Frederic
Rentsch, ... in the same thread.

PyQt 4.1 supports Qt 4.2, confusingly enough. Consequential news
centers around QtTest (yeah!), QAxContainer, and QGraphicsView:

Everything Python-related you want is probably one or two clicks away in
these pages:

Python.org's Python Language Website is the traditional
center of Pythonia

Notice especially the master FAQ

PythonWare complements the digest you're reading with the
marvelous daily python url
http://www.pythonware.com/daily
Mygale is a news-gathering webcrawler that specializes in (new)
World-Wide Web articles related to Python.
http://www.awaretek.com/nowak/mygale.html
While cosmetically similar, Mygale and the Daily Python-URL
are utterly different in their technologies and generally in
their results.

For far, FAR more Python reading than any one mind should
absorb, much of it quite interesting, several pages index
much of the universe of Pybloggers.

Lesher of intelligently summarizing action on the python-dev mailing
list once every other week.

The Python Package Index catalogues packages.

Python Success Stories--from air-traffic control to on-line
match-making--can inspire you or decision-makers to whom you're
subject with a vision of what the language makes practical.

The Python Software Foundation (PSF) has replaced the Python
Consortium as an independent nexus of activity. It has official
responsibility for Python's development and maintenance.
http://www.python.org/psf/
Among the ways you can support PSF is with a donation.
