My prefered Python IDE

My prefered Python editor is Pyscripter from MMExperts. It is not only an editor. Pyscripter is a full Python IDE including (remote) debugging, a class browser, and all other nice helpers which a full featured IDE needs.

Do you have a script for me ?

Do you have an interesting Python script which does some really cool thing on Windows ? Please post them to this site. It`s very simple - simply copy&paste it to this form. No login is requiered.

Hint: For syntax highlighting and correct Python intendation place your code between html tags <pre> and </pre>.

My prefered web framework

My prefered web framework for developing web applications is Django. Django calls itself The web framework for perfectionists with deadlines. It is a really fast, scalable and (thanks Python) the sexiest web framework of the world.
