Python jobs board

Wednesday 20 April 2005

Tidbit about my life: I am now the Python Job Board monkey. That is, if you follow the directions and send an email containing a job posting to jobs@python.org, I will see it, turn your job posting into good content for the web page, update the web site, and send you an email saying something chipper like, "Thanks for using the Python Job Board!".

Why am I doing this? To help Python, which I think is a good cause. It only takes an hour or two a week, and it's mindless geeky work, which I am good at. I got to learn the hard way how to use SSH from Windows (PuTTY is your friend), I fixed a few bugs in the way python.org is generated when using Windows, and as an unexpected side-benefit, I am now ned at org of python.

Ned, how about cooking up an RSS or Atom feed for the Python Job Board?

Well, I heard through the grapevine (thanks, Ian!) about this RSS feed: http://www.carnageblender.com/public/ss/pythonjobs.tcl

It seems a bit erratic in its ability to scrape the HTML.

What we really need is an RSS output mode for ReST. Anyone have something like that?
