FLOSS Weekly Interview with Guido van Rossum

by Jeremy Jones

FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software) Weekly is a podcast in the TWiT family of podcasts. This week's podcast featured an interview with Python's creator, Guido van Rossum. The interview covered Python's origin and future, a very little bit about Python usage and internals, and another small bit about the current state of Python in the web framework arena. Guido mentioned that his favorite web framework, and what would likely remain his favorite framework for quite a while, is Django. He mentioned that he was using a piece of Django at Google and gave huge kudos to the Django development team because, "they really get open source."

While I'm excited to hear about Guido's interest in Django, I would love to hear about some of other projects which he is following.
