I was introduced to Oblique Strategies here on MeFi, and the cryptic collection of aphorisms by Peter Schmidt and Brian Eno has been one of my favorite creative tools ever since. Lately, I've done most of my creating with a text editor and terminal, so I made a similar tool skewed towards programmers (but hopefully useful to problem solvers of all sorts). It includes a tiny JSON API and a command line interface. [more inside]
I just finished the excellent CS101 course at Udacity, which promised I'd learn to build a search engine in seven weeks. I was skeptical, but sure enough, I did! This very simple search engine is based on the code I learned in class, and searches the Udacity course materials. While building it, I also learned to use the Bottle web framework and Google App Engine. I kept a blog with lots of details here. The next round of classes starts tomorrow, so I thought I'd post this here and encourage anyone interested in learning to build their own to sign up.
