Joe talked about the 2 semester course he attended at Iowa Western on Linux Engineering.
Steve talked about Code Like a Pythonista, by David Goodger. He thinks it is a great resource. I agree with him. (So much I did a presentation on David’s material back in 2008). Steve also liked the Python Challenge. He has made it though the first 5 or 6 so far and hopes to make it all the way through.
Jeff brought a Code editor that he likes, Editra. It is a very nice, rapidly advancing development environment. If you are in the market you should take a look if Komodo or PyCharm are turning your head.
