The pace of Ancho development has not been what I'd hoped for recently, but things are about to pick up.
- On August 6th, I'll be presenting to the STL Python meetup group about Ancho. I've promised to give a basic demo, run through some use cases, and explain some of the choices I've made to use particular technologies and not others. As there is currently no published code, I am hoping that this will be an example of "talk-driven development," where I will be motivated to finish some features in order to forestall public embarrassment.
- I've signed up to participate in Julython, although I don't really hold out much hope that I'll occupy a spot on the leaderboards. I'll be very satisfied if I can get a proof-of-concept demo up and running by August. Still, Julython is a neat idea -- you set a hook that lets Julython know when you've made a commit to your public repository, and it publishes some competitive stats. It's the National Novel Writing Month for programming nerds.
More news as events warrant.
