Pycon 2009 was a blast. The talks were great and I'm really excited about learning Python 3. I purchased Programming in Python 3 by Mark Summerfield and I'm installing 3 now on my linux laptop. I'm going to try out eclipse because i'm sick of idle. I will let you all know how it goes as I'm reading and experimenting.
I have a need to write a python tcp/ip multithreaded server for a reporting system. The server needs to report on the status of C#.NET clients.
I'm also taking Analysis of Algorithms right now so I'll be posting some python code for the algorithms i'll be coding up. Pretty exciting.
