As we come to the end of 2013 i would like to take the opportunity to personally thank some major influencers that have made a real impact in my development this year.
Firstly thanks to +Simon Kartar
who provided so much support and solid guidance this year. If you ever need a truly capable business analysis or project manager then he's your man!
Next would be +Idan Gazit
who gave a talk in DjangoCon Europe 2011 on responsive design and django.. After watching the video i was inspired to have a look at the framework..
After that comes some of the most enjoyable and humorous tutorials / screen casts i have experienced from +Cory Simmons
and his Django Djourney blogs.. Cory's style is fairly unique with a "Let's just jump in" attitude that is refreshing from a learners perspective..
Another person producing some solid tutorials is +Mike Hibbert
who i would advise anyone interested in django should check out his YouTube channel..
On a getting back to the foundations of python my thanks goes out to +Joe Warren
, +Scott Rixner
, +Stephen Wong
and the rest of their team who produced a superb and very enjoyable interactive python course on coursera..
From a top publication perspective +Daniel Greenfeld
's two scoops is quickly becoming a major reference in my ongoing development. Thanks for taking the time to write such a great book.
As it is unusual to be able to thank the creator of the very language you have such a passion for my thanks goes to +Guido van Rossum
. I only hope one day i can write some code worthy of your language..!!
Lastly my thanks go to a couple of tech bloggers who have both given me support and some great reading over the year being +Trinh Nguyen
and +Ajay kumar
Here's looking forward to a great new year ahead and a continued push to become a better developer..!!
