  1. The Pyramid tutorials could really do with some work. They don't spend much time introducing the concepts and explaining what you're doing at each step, they just give you a bunch of code to copy and paste with only an overall description of what it aims to do when they bother to describe it at all. The writing is also vague and uncertain, like it *means* to give a high-level introduction and then dive in but then it just moves on to the next topic instead of diving in. Here's a tip guys: if I'm reading the tutorial it's because I want to learn how to use your software, not because I'm still deciding whether or not I should use your software. At this point I really don't know much more about how to use it than I did before I went through the tutorials. Guess it's back to plan B then: read somebody else's Pyramid app and try to figure out how it works while cross-referencing the API docs. !coderpony !python

      1. @widget I know how to use Python silly, I'm attempting to learn how to use Pyramid.

        1. @toksyuryel Get it anyway. I got it after I knew the language somewhat and it really helped cement the concepts. He has a follow-up book too that's pretty good.

        2. @toksyuryel Sorry, all I saw was "HUGE WALL OF TEXT !python"

          1. @widget If you're not going to read a post, don't reply to it. This should be common sense.

            1. @toksyuryel TYPE SHORTER POSTS.

              1. @widget I personally feel that the idea of a person who has to shorten their posts for no other reason than specifically to conform to the what can only be described as unreasonably abhorrent demands of a specific person simply because they do not wish to take the time out of their life to read an entire message that may be full of unique insight that would help a person improve their mindset is something that I can only figure to be an abhorrent concept that brings shame and tears to the eyes of those who truly appreciate the diversity present in those who take the time to deliberate on their points and give enough content to clarify any bits of vague conjecture that may be present in their wording if they had not taken the time to specify such ambiguities in the notices that they decide are worth their time to write out and then post to an internet discussion forum to await user responses.

    2. @toksyuryel Ignore the reviews on that particular page. Elsewhere it rates pretty high.
