comment Starting Development with Python
While some consider Python a scripting language, it is a general purpose programming language. You can even make games using PyGame. Try checking Github for Python projects, you will find plethora of appliances.

comment Generating stats from large data set
Assume it's in a file and you can run a job over it, that should generate stats. Afterwards I don't want to touch the data set anymore to provide stats to users.

comment Is there a canonical book on mathematics for programmers?
It would be great, if rather than merely use word 'obvious' Knuth made some parts more obvious. But with hard work all stuff can be understood, if one has solid math background from school.

I have created a very early version of python package for accessing the database schema. If anyone is interested, it can be found here: code.google.com/p/fathom

For some time now I have been thinking about migrating to Down Under, so maybe you can help me find a job there :-P

comment How would most programmers feel about the bugs they wrote?
Then I feel grateful. I can write a test and be sure, that neither I will make it again, nor anyone will be able to find it ever again. This gives me even more confidence in my work ;-)

comment Is what someone publishes on the Internet fair game when considering them for employment as a programmer?
Is it legal to take into consideration candidates private live when hiring him? If he was homosexual and you refused to hire him because of that, you would be so sued. So how is this different?

That's why I will develop also a PyQt desktop application. These are three technologies that I love and I would like to be able to interact with each of them in a single project. Anyway, are you always so skeptical towards web apps? I have to say that, that often choose web apps over desktop ones, e.g. I'd rather use google docs, rather than Open Office.

If I decide to develop a web app I'll contact you for sure, to get some insight about security issues. Thanks a lot for your comments, I'll keep that in mind.

comment Does it make sense to develop open source python library for database inspection?
What I have in mind is just a different interface for the same operations, that desktop client would provide. Say you want to delete a table in PostgreSQL. You can either run psql and DROP TABLE or pgadmin. I would like to add third option, through web app. Especially that Authentication backend can be written to authenticate in whatever way you want. Crap, those comments aren't the best way for this discussion. Some mailing list or forum would be better :-/
