PyGTA on Tuesday should be fun. The question is:
If you had a million dollars (CDN) to spend on a Python project, what would you spend it on?
Sure, money doesn't solve all problems, but if you had it available and earmarked for "something python", what would you do with it? We'll assume a project of no longer than 5 years or so...
- do you hire, give bounties, partner with universities, or sponsor developers to go to sprints
- do you hire 5 crack programmers, 10 average ones, or 40 so-so ones
- do you hire just yourself, just people you know, shop the idea around (bids etc), or go public
- do you spread the money among many projects, or just one
- do you do something commercial or Open Source
- do you build something new, enhance/fix something existing, advertise/document something, or set up some social structure
- do you focus on tools, core language, libraries or frameworks
- do you fix an annoyance, add something missing, remove something unneeded, or change something
- do you want to push Python into new markets, or fix issues in current markets
- should we spend money on Python at all, or will the money taint the process?
