Google I/O 2008 – Painless Python Part 2 of 2

Painless Python for Proficient Programmers Part II Alex Martelli (Google) Python is a popular very-high-level programming language, with a clean and spare syntax, simple and regular semantics, a large standard library and a wealth of third-party extensions, libraries and tools. With several production-quality open-source implementations available, many excellent books, and growing acceptance in both industry and academia, Python can play some useful role within a huge variety of software development projects. Moreover, Python is really easy to learn, particularly (though not exclusively) for programmers who are skilled at such languages as Java, C++ and C. This talk addresses software developers who are experienced in other languages but have had limited or no exposure to Python yet, and offers a rapid overview of the main characteristics of the language, plus a brief synopsis of its main implementations, its standard library, and Python’s use with Google App Engine.

Writing python program to connect usenet?

Question by Leda Logan: Writing python program to connect usenet?
Hi, after getting news servers, can I write a python program all by myself to browse and post on usenet group? If that’s possible, could anyone gives out some tips how to do that? Thanks.

Answer by om
Sure, it’s possible. One of the standard library modules implements the client side of the NNTP protocol that netnews clients use to obtain articles from (and post articles to) servers, so that’s a big help. See http://docs.python.org/library/nntplib.html for details and examples.

Even so, writing a full-featured news reader isn’t a trivial task. If you haven’t done anything similar before then you might try tackling a few smaller projects first as a way of working up to this one.
