PyCon, the Python conference, took place I think a couple of days ago. A couple of guys at Google "have maintained a blog":http://pycon.blogspot.com which contains some notes on the different talks. Scattered around on this blog are some links to a couple of interesting Python projects: * "MindRetrieve":http://www.mindretrieve.net: personal web history searcher, which is written using * "PyLucene":http://pylucene.osafoundation.org: the, with GCJ compiled, version of one of the best free search libraries: "Lucene":http://lucene.sf.net. "GCJ":http://gcc.gnu.org/java/ is a Java to native machine compiler as you may know. Python bindings for PyLucene were created using * "SWIG":http://www.swig.org: software that makes it easier to write extension modules for various languages, such as Python, Perl and Ruby * "PyPI":http://www.python.org/pypi: the Python Package Index * "Chandler":http://www.osafoundation.org/Chandler_Compelling_Vision.htm: PIM software written in Python.
