I’m super excited to announce that I just launched a brand new podcast for Python developers called Talk Python To Me. This weekly podcast already has the first episode published and some amazing guests lined up.
In collaboration with DevelopMentor to get the word out about our Python curriculum, I built a simple but fairly comprehensive Python cheat sheet. It’s pretty thorough at 16 pages in length and covers a diverse set of topics including Language, Types, Ecosystem, Databases, File I/O (JSON, XML, Text, etc), and more.
If you find this useful please mention it on Twitter or forward it to a friend.

Time for another great guest blog post from Bradley Needham to follow up on his very popular Swift vs. C++ post. Enjoy!
Initialization in Modern C++ vs Apple’s Swift
A little while ago I wrote a short post comparing some of the basic features of Modern C++ and Apple’s Swift. It was far from comprehensive, basically only touching on the constructs mentioned in Michael Kennedy’s post Comparison of Python and Apple’s Swift Programming Language Syntax. However the post did generate enough interest that I decided to continue the comparison by looking at one of the differences I find interesting between the two languages, initialization. Initialization is very important in any language and both C++ and Swift have built in constructs and checks to help make sure that objects get completely initialized before they are used.

I’m really happy to announce the latest course I’ve co-authored at DevelopMentor:
The Swift Programming Language
This course is specifically build to help teams of existing Objective-C developers quickly but thoroughly get up to speed with Swift. Continue reading
No. Seriously. It’s really good. Make sure you save it to your reading list.
If you’re ready to start building iOS and OS X applications with Apple’s latest language, check out our course.
Here’s some more background on this course.
