Been ages since I made a post, been distracted for the first bit and then just fell out of the habit of it. Also doesn’t help that pretty much no one reads this stuff, but I will try and keep it up anyways.
I have been working on a few things. Actually a bunch of little things but mostly I have been working on Librarian and some accompanying tools for an upcoming computer based card game I have been wanting to make for some time.
The card game will be skill based (no buying cards) and open source so anyone can contribute to the cards and rules.
And a bridge between stackless python and twisted. I have yet to really use it but always been interested in the idea behind Twistless.
Thats everything I have released, Some other little things on the side and some unfinished stuff you can checkout at my GitHub.
However, during this end of year holidays I will be attempting to teach my Girlfriend of 6 years now how to program finally! This will be interesting.
Everything she knows about computers is just whatever has rubbed off from me over the past 6 years. Its not a bad amount. She knows more about computers then the average person and I think she is able to learn to program but still. She is very intelligent but no computer genius… Neither am I tho.
We both agreed I should blog about the process so look forward to that.
As you may have guessed, I will be teaching her python. But on top of that I will be teaching her some basic usage of git and emacs and some other things that help with developing software like how to unittest and more. It will be fun to see what she gets easy and what she finds hard.
So I will be reporting on her progress through this process and probably making a loose curriculum and tests that would be available online as well if anyone else wants to look at what we are going over. Hopefully I can structure a decent learning experience that will cater to someone like her. Never done anything like it before however so we will see how it goes.
Sorry if I am going on tangents playing mmo’s while I post this hehe.
