Vancouver, BC, Canada
I'm lucky enough to spend a fair amount of my time at work coding in Python, as well as the majority of my home/hobby time. I'm working on a game with my seven-year-old daughter using PyGame and I participate in the Edu-Sig mailing list. Currently I'm exploring the use of PyObjC to wrap some of the work I'm doing on data-level collaboration. I've been working extensively with XML since it was called SGML-Web and with Python for the past several years.
Non-work projects I've been working on, most of which will be using PyObjC and/or PyGame:
- Quick-fix to [Pathological] so multiple logins share high-scores. My kids really love this game (so do I)
Game framework in PyGame to make it easier and faster to develop games, including:
FayRay, a map-based fairy game with my 7 year-old daughter contributing graphics and game design
BoggleTrainer, a port of Boggle which "solves" puzzle, makes spelling suggestions, and looks up definitions of words, gives hints, etc. to help with kids' spelling and vocabulary
GoMoku, playable now, needs some tweaks
- Kutia, a Logo-like turtle-graphics tool to explain programming
- Quipu, a hex-based path game
- Port [VPython] to OS X natively (not using X Windows)
I contribute occasionally to reStructuredText
- VPython explorations to visual geometry for kids (fun for grownups too)
- Command-line access to OS X's VTwin search engine
If anyone is interested in seeing these, let me know and I'll make them public sooner.
