Make a Python game in minutes with Gloss

,----[ Quote ]
| In this tutorial, I'm going to walk you through what it takes to 
| make a simple game with Pygame + Gloss. All the code is already 
| written (and I think you'll find it very short!) so it's just a 
| matter of explaining to you what it does and why. We used Linux 
| (naturally), but both Pygame and Gloss should work fine on Windows 
| too - make sure you have Pygame, Python OpenGL and Gloss 
| installed, and if you're on Linux you'll also need the Numpy 
| Python module.



On the PySide - interview

| Recently the dot carried an article about the first public release of PySide,
| LGPL python bindings to Qt. We conducted a short interview with one of the
| people behind PySide, Nokia employee Matti Airas


The current state and future of Python

,----[ Quote ]
| So what does python have to offer?  It is a nice mix of procedural
| programming, object oriented and functional.  That is what I love about it.
| It allows you to work in a mix of all three.  It also seems that it is made
| by a bunch of people that understand that while flexibility is important
| (Perl code) you have to be able to READ and UNDERSTAND something written by
| another human being.  One way python does this is by forcing you to indent
| your code.  This may seem stupid to some but readability goes WAY up, when
| something is consistently indented the same way.  Another way they make it
| easier to read than other languages is by making it more like natural
| language, the language is more verbose than your average language but not as
| bad as something like BASIC.
