comment How can I learn to effectively write Pythonic code?
+1 Once you know the basics of a language, reading code will help far more than reading books.

comment Why is the sudden increase in number of Git submitters on Debian popcon graph in 2010-01?
git-core is just not as cool of a name. Once they changed that everything was rainbows and unicorns.

comment Questioning pythonic type checking
As for your last point. I am essentially constructing a dependency injection container. If the components have an init method I call it, if they don't, I don't. I would be extremely interested in another approach which is cleaner.

That's what I get for not doing my research. Your approach solves both my concerns with the try/except.

@MartijnPieters Nope, I hadn't seen that question. Won't let me close it at this point although that's probably for the best as pilmuncher's answer is exactly what I was looking for.

comment Pythonic use of the isinstance function?
Thanks for the detailed answer. I'm going to look into ABCs, I think they may help here. We shouldn't have too many.

comment Justification for bidirectional relationship
Great answer. I don't know why I didn't think of passing both tiles in. My problem was that I was assuming the MoveManager lived above the Item and the Tile. This would lead to the Item becoming a POJO. However, the MSDN article (and your answer) would suggest the Item lives above the MoveManager and passes the tiles down to the MoveManager, which knows about all the logic of handling collisions, etc.
