Ido Kanner (ik_5) wrote on his blog about his First Firebird and Python application :
It’s that time of the year again – I’m required to learn new technology due to a project requirement.
The requirement is to write something using django, but I do not know django or Python.
So I’ve started my first project using the Python language, just to have a feel for it.
