Learning Python the easy way – Creating a project

Posted by on October 21, 2012 at 1:55 pm.

I have created my first python project.

It's just a simple script that posts to facebook. I've wanted to create something like this to automate my posting for Talk'n tech, a reading group where we share interesting articles.

It actually took less work than I expected. I thought it'd take me a whole weekend  to get the script working. It turns out I only needed 3 hours. I learned a lot about Facebook's api, and handling files and executing shell commands with Python. I also learned about the proper way of handling cron jobs in Ubuntu.
