Hello Everyone,

I just started programming in Python, and because I just started I chose to learn Python 3 instead of Python 2.x.  I started writing a simple GUI program, and after looking around, my only option for toolkits seemed to be Tk/Tcl with Tkinter.  I would have liked to use PyGTK, but as far as I can tell, PyGTK does not support Python 3.  Does anyone know of any other choice I have besides Tkinter?

Also, has anyone moved on to Python 3 and its new syntax, or do you plan to stay with Python 2.x for practical reasons?

The company I used to work for, Blue Lava Technologies, released a couple different python projects, and Both of these made use of Django, Python, and Amazon Web Services. iLovePhotos also used python swig bindings to OpenCV for facial detection on the website. I run my own consulting company here,, and we are predominantly a python and objective-C house.

I'm definitely looking for other python developers in Hawaii. Its getting fairly scarce here sadly.

Hi Brian,

I know PeerNews was looking for Python developers at one point, and a friend of mine tells me there's one animation shop using it, although I don't know what for.

Many thanks for adding "Profitability" to my list.

Sam, who are the couple you know of? (If you can tell us.)

Profitability of Hawaii uses it for some of our build and install scripts, but not for any of the products.

Hi All,

I was wondering if people had a sense of how much Python was being used for development by companies in Hawaii. I know of a couple. Can anyone provide any concrete examples?

Many thanks in advance
