Python choisi pour l’enseignement de l’algorithmique en classe de seconde pour la rentrée 2009/2010 en France

Posted by patrick sur septembre 20, 2009


C’est en lisant le magazine hors série N°37 ‘Tangente (http://www.tangente-education.com, « Les algorithmes au coeur du raisonnement structuré« )  que j’ai appris que le langage python faisait partie des 2 principaux langages de programmation recommandés pour l’apprentissage de l’algorithmique en classe de seconde ! C’est une bonne nouvelle pour les élèves et pour python également :). C’est aussi dans ce même magazine que j’ai appris que l’algorithmique était désormais inscrite dans les programmes de lycées !

The SciPy library is built to work with NumPy arrays, and provides many user-friendly and efficient numerical routines such as routines for numerical integration and optimization. Together, they run on all popular operating systems, are quick to install, and are free of charge. NumPy and SciPy are easy to use, but powerful enough to be depended upon by some of the world’s leading scientists and engineers. If you need to manipulate numbers on a computer and display or publish the results, give SciPy a try!‘)

Les projets python de la semaine 37: Tornado (web) , sqlkit (database), HeeChee (mercurial-subversion), sinthgunt (video, ffmpeg)

Posted by patrick sur septembre 12, 2009

  • http://www.tornadoweb.org/ (‘Tornado is an open source version of the scalable, non-blocking web server and tools that power FriendFeed. The FriendFeed application is written using a web framework that looks a bit like web.py or Google’s webapp, but with additional tools and optimizations to take advantage of the underlying non-blocking infrastructure. The framework is distinct from most mainstream web server frameworks (and certainly most Python frameworks) because it is non-blocking and reasonably fast. Because it is non-blocking and uses epoll, it can handle thousands of simultaneous standing connections, which means it is ideal for real-time web services. We built the web server specifically to handle FriendFeed’s real-time features — every active user of FriendFeed maintains an open connection to the FriendFeed servers. (For more information on scaling servers to support thousands of clients, see The C10K problem…Tornado has been tested on Python 2.5 and 2.6. To use all of the features of Tornado, you need to have PycURLsimplejson installed and a JSON library like )’)
  • http://www.aeracode.org/2009/9/10/announcing-heechee/ (…One of the particular issues I have is with svn:externals. A lot of apps – including some we have at work – rely on svn:externals to pull in external dependencies into a libs folder along with the project itself. Externals is one of the few features of subversion that I thought was pretty much perfect, and it was sad to see my move to Mercurial break itOne of the questions led him onto hg-git – the awesome git backend plugin for Mercurial, that the GitHub guys wrote – and how they first investigated the idea of an svn gateway to expose their repositories transparently to subversion users. From what I gathered, subversion’s wire format proved too tricky to deal with, and so they turned elsewhere…After some digging, reading an obscure academic paper and liberal application of Wireshark, I grew confident enough that I could at least implement something. A day later, and I’d like to present the very first version of what I’m calling Heechee (if you get the pun, ten nerd points). Heechee is a transparent mercurial-as-subversion gateway. It serves a Mercurial repository as a Subversion WebDAV-based repository. It’s still in the early stages, but at the moment it will serve its own mercurial repository to subversion in such a way that you can check out the repository, and update to various revisions within it.You can check it out at BitBucket. It’s pretty alpha code, and make sure you have the dependencies mentioned in the README, but it works, which greatly surprises me. I plan to much improve the code to support more ‘advanced’ features, like being able to do more than checkout and update, as well as exposing tags and branches correctly. There’s even the chance I’ll stick Git support in, when I’ve had a play with Dulwich.)
