On Open Source


I have been studying python for weeks.  It is not a difficult language, it just takes time to practice and testing.

here is what you need to do to learn python.

1. download python 2.5.1
2. read the tutorial
3. open “IDLE (Python GUI)”
4. Start Coding

i went thought most of the tutorial and i think i am pretty good at it now.  object, class, file io, control flow, data structure, no problem.

  2. we want to develop a new type of localization tools with python; see my idea of 0.1 and Our 0.1 Beta for detail. python is pretty cool. the Python GUI make testing/learning python easy. all you basically do is, type the code, hit enter, and it runs. i really like the fact that you don’t exactly have to compile the code. i think python is ideal for open source because the source code is your executable.
