I forgot to mention, in my OSCon wrap-up entry, the defining moment of the conference for me.
I gave a very, very brief lightning talk just to sing Python's praises as a
stable platform for building services on top of. I figured I should say
something, since I am sure that at least a few people expected me to. I
didn't know many of the people in the conference though, so when I stood up
I was surprised at the response:
I stood up in front of the audience and said "Hi, I'm glyph, and I wrote a
package called Twisted..." and at this point in my speech I was interrupted
by applause from nearly half the room. Best of all, I looked at the faces of
the people applauding and I couldn't recognize almost any of them.
Thanks to everyone who clapped - you've encouraged me to spend some more
time maintaining it.
But do write me some email and tell me how you're using it, would you? :)
