"Python is a great language for exploration and discovery. It is enabler because it makes it easy to turn an idea into reality.
This talk is a ""how I did it"" talk about how I took an idea, a web cam, and Python and created art, explored science, and illustrated concepts that our ancestors knew by watching the sky but we have lost.
This talk will be a step-by-step walk-through with working code (http://bit.ly/ospw-code) of using Django, PIL, a database, and the standard libraries to implement my ideas and hopefully will inspire others to do the same. I gave this talk at PyOhio this year, and while I'll modify it a bit, here are the slides from that: bit.ly/ospw-talk-pdf"
