The Never-ending "To-Learn" List

Published on Sept. 10, 2007, 8:43 p.m.

I'm officially a student! August marked the beginning of a new semester for me, and this time I'm a full-time student. After being on the faculty side of things for a while, I'm actually having a great time being a student again. One of the major benefits of being a student is that I'm actually getting to dive into that never-ending list of technology tools that I've been wanting to learn how to use!

Just to name a few:
  • Python - I'm writing as much code as I possibly can in Python. I've used python minimally in the past, but it's actually nice to start working on larger projects using it. I don't really like to get into religious debates about languages, but Python does feel nice!

  • Pygame - I'm not building a game (yet), but it does make a nice foundation for putting pictures on a screen!

  • PIL - the Python Image Library offers an Excellent way to to Image manipulation!

  • Twisted - if you EVER need to build an event-driven network application from the ground up... use this!

  • OpenGL - GAhh! Why haven't I learned this before... there's a lot to learn!

  • Luckily, there's PyOpenGL!

That should get me started!
