Links from PyCon

Steve Holden has a blog, with very little Google-foo, but a lot of great content! I missed the IronPython talk, so I was very happy to find extensive notes on it.

Steve is the author of Python Web Programming, which is the granddaddy of all python books about the web, and still has a special place in my heart.

Some people who bought it were surprised to discover that it covered network programming, and building a web server, in detail, and spent less time dealing with how to get things done with existing web frameworks. But I actually liked that it covered the topic of web programming from top to bottom, and got you involved in all of the details of what was happening from the network packet level right on up to serving pages.

That’s a book that could only be written in a language like Python, and it’s a book with a much longer shelf life than something tied to a specific implementation technology.
