If you have been to PyCon 2012 in Santa Clara which was last week you might have seen me walk around with a Fireteam shirt. Yes it is true, we're using Python here! Python and game services for us are a perfect fit. Python is all about getting things running and evolving quickly and so is the industry we're in. And what other language is better suited for gaming needs than the one with a conference opened by Robots dancing to a Portal mashup.
This year's PyCon was also the largest so far. With 2200 visitors it was a couple of hundred above the intended cap. Exciting times for Python for sure.
I also gave a talk on Code Generation in Python (Recording) there. While not exactly related to what we're doing here at Fireteam it might still be interesting for some of the more tech savy among you.
We hope that there will be an actual talk about what we're doing here (and more importantly how we're using Python) at PyCon next year.
