Julython

July is for Python

July 1st to July 31st, 31 days and nights of writing Python code.

Julython is a month to try something new, something you have had rolling around in your brain for a while. This could be something simple like 'build the next Google' or 'replace email'. Or you could try something hard like 'build a Django website'. All that matters is that you write it in Python and during the month of July.

Why only 31 days? Why not all year. Well, for one we all have lives and jobs which get in the way. Having a month set aside where we all get together and write code will allow us to rely on each other to keep us on track towards our goals. There will also be a little bit of healthy competition and public flogging to encourge everyone to finish.

Goals

Since it is very hard to quantify code we have come up with a simple metric to decide the 'winners' of the competition. The goal is to commit at least once a day for the entire month. If you are working on the next twitter or instigram you don't have to give your code away. Your commits could be just to a local git or mecurial repository on your machine. Since there is no real prizes you will only be cheating yourself by commiting 30 days of lorem ipsum.

For those on the leader board though you will have to push your commits to a public repository which everyone will clearly be able to see if your padding your stats.

Site

The site is a work in progress right now and volunteers are welcome also we could use some nice free hosting (hint hint). In the mean time follow us on the twitter @julython.

Hacking

The site is written in Django and hosted on Appengine. You can use this gist to setup your dev environment to help out:
