If you are in or around the Chicago area, I will be demo-ing some techniques for coding Python in TextMate, an editor for Mac OS X. It's part of the Snakes On Apples themed Chipy (Chicago Python Users) meeting. It's at 7pm, Thursday August 9th; click the link for more info and directions.
I'll try to cover the basics but then also some of the more advanced stuff like creating custom Bundles to automate tasks (Commands / Snippets/ Macros). And if all goes well, I'll be able to show off my somewhat-working, revisted version of running an interactive doctest session directly in the docstring of a python file. I started working on this a while back but had set it aside.
