» Moving to Python 3

My article on supporting Python 2 and Python 3 from the same code base is now freely available on LWN.net. The article is based on my recent work on Urwid's Python 3 support. I owe thanks to the people that started and contributed the compatibility work on github and bitbucket. I'm looking forward to a release with Python 3 support very soon.

I also gave a talk at last night's OPAG about these changes. Thank you to all those that came out, we should have these meetings more regularly. Maybe back at the pub next time?

» Good Linux Games

LWN.net just published an article listing some good Linux games (comments possibly even better than the article). I'm posting this here so I can find it again when I have the time to waste.

» LWN article on Alternatives to SQL Databases

I have written a third article for LWN.net: "Alternatives to SQL Databases". If you're not a subscriber, check back in a couple weeks when it will be free for everyone.
