Via Tarek Ziadé. Right after the break.

Here it comes:

1. What’s the coolest Python application, framework or library you have discovered in 2012?

A lot of them. Requests by the ever-awesome Kenneth Reitz, for example.

2. What new programming technique did you learn in 2012?

Python and Pythonic code is the answer for this one. I fell in love with Python really quickly. For a reason.

3. Which open source project did you contribute to the most in 2012? What did you do?

Mine don’t count, right? If yes, then it would be Aura and its pl_PL translation, but it is not Python. (BTW, if anyone is looking for some pl_PL translations for their project using GNU gettext, drop me a line.)

4. Which Python blog or website did you read the most in 2012? Also, Planet Python is providing me with a lot of news and such. I also have some other blogs in my RSS.

5. What are the three top things you want to learn in 2013?

Python: web development, wxPython (Py{Qt4,Side} now, but wxWidgets is multi-platform and I might try it), databases.

Non-Python: LaTeX and probably a few other things.

6. What is the top software, application or library you wish someone would write in 2013?

A me-friendly Todo list (I am going to take care of this soon, with wxWidgets and GAE), but that is barely important. Because nobody fits my needs in terms of accessibility and such. Actually, I have a bit of spare time now and may as well devote it to doing that. Remember question 5? Web development → I want it to run on GAE or Heroku (more likely, Heroku), free for everyone. wxPython → multi-platform GUI. Databases → storing the TODOs. LaTeX? Personal use.

Want to do your own list? Here’s how:

  1. copy-paste the questions and answer to them in your blog

  2. tweet it with the #2012pythonmeme hashtag
