Take a look at OpenERP, this growing ERP is 100% python and is very powerful

comment Resume dilemma for professional job
Forget about "official" requirements, think only about actual requirements. Try to ask more exactly what the companies need, and if you think you can handle the job, do it and get paid for what you're worth! As other said, you may be surprised how easily you can catch up with what some companies call "senior developper".

comment Form screenshot for legal proof of clicking one of the checkboxes?
@LieRyan There will be always a way to crack/hack something. Always. I just wrote: "considered best secure", not "100% secure", and there's a huge gab between those two things. Moreover, when talking about crypto and secure computing "100% secure" cannot be reached.

comment A free game-development language?
Try to make him play. Go on steam, buy him "Space Chem". This game is for future developers (our school bought it). If he like it, if he goes very far, then he may want to be a developer. Otherwise give up (on that field) with him.

Put a man in-between who can explain why such things are stupid. You'll save some time and money. I've done something like this, and this only solution we agreed with our customer (which was considered "best secured") is to generate a PDF file with an automatically generated password (= you can't modify this PDF).

"You, on the other hand, are clearly not as smart as you think you are". If I thought I was that smart, I would never have asked such a question.

comment Is there an expiration date for well regarded, but old books on programming?
@Mike Partridge => I wrote "the students don't know that a PC can handle more than one web sitewebsite!" and you correct my sentence: "...based on this type of education, they may not know that a PC can handle more than one web sitewebsite!". But I swear: they actually don't know: I'm a teacher at this school, 4 hours/week and it's the (sad) reality. Unfortunately I'm teaching C++ not web. Hope this will change next year.
