One Python in a Pub, with 100 Rails Developers...

Python helped deliver the goods last Wednesday evening in front of a
one hundred strong crowd of Rails hecklers...

Video footage here:
http://blog.scouta.com/2007/08/16/iccarus/

....just kidding, they were all great chaps, and only a few were Rails
devs, and only a few of them were hecklers :-)

I was amazed at how many developers in the audience use Rails for day
to day development. As far as I could see, I was the only person
developing web apps using a Python framework.

For the interested, a more thorough screencast of the ICCARUS
visualisation system is over here:
http://scouta.com/faves/8raO17jT8Y3/

We used Python, Pyrex and Pygame to build ICCARUS over about 3 days.
ICCARUS retrieved its data via a web service provided by TurboGears.
It ran on OSX, Vista and Linux with minimal porting. Python through
the entire system. Quite a 'Python Success Story', IMHO.
