Richard Jones' Log: PyWeek #3 is coming!

Sat, 05 Aug 2006

PyWeek 3 is scheduled it for the first week of September. The exact dates are 00:00UTC Sunday 3rd September to 00:00UTC Sunday 10th September. Visit the PyWeek website to sign up or read the rules. The PyWeek challenge:

  • Invites entrants to write a game in one week from scratch in Python either as an individual or in a team,
  • Is intended to be challenging and fun,
  • Will hopefully increase the public body of python game tools, code and expertise,
  • Will let a lot of people actually finish a game, and
  • May inspire new projects (see some games from previous challenges)

Was there a wiki for pyweek somewhere, sometime?

Comment by Richard Jones on Sun, 06 Aug 2006

There isn't currently, no. What sorts of things would you envisage it being used for?

There are oft-asked questions about packaging, platforms, libraries and such... I had a feeling there was a wiki to talk about that sort of stuff. Was obviously imagining it. Also, was looking to add Pyglyph and SDL-ctypes to the libraries list ;-)

There is a wiki on mcat, but it got spammed and no-one but me was using it, so I made it private :)

I can't host any more apps on the site, and my previous calls for a wiki for Django netted nothing so for now there's no wiki.
