If there's one thing I like about Python is how I can use it to automate boring tasks for me. Today I used it to help me manage my own blog!
Today is the day! Today is the day we take our APL programs and interpret them, so that something like
÷ 1 2 3 -⍨ 1.1 2.2 3.3 can output
10 5 3.33333333.
Let's build a simple APL interpreter! APL is an array-oriented programming language I picked up recently. The ease with which I can write code related to mathematics, its strange built-ins (which look like

Py-don'ts are anti-tips for writing good Python code. Sometimes learning what is good isn't enough. You have to compare it with what is bad as well!
I have always loved solving mazes... so naturally I had to write a program to solve mazes for me!
HueHue is a very colourful game I wrote with my colleague @inesfmarques.

Minesweeper has to be one of the most well-known minigames of all time, no? I spent my fair share of Sunday mornings playing minesweeper in my Windows XP computer...
