I have a suggestion: how about interacting with api's with python (basecamp, twitter, etc)
Suggestions for class project
So happy to see strong interest for this class. We will be starting on June 20th (this Monday), with a new task roughly once per week. Big thanks to Mike Edwards, a graduate school professor who has taught this course before, for his help with the syllabus for this course.
As part of the course we will be working on a class project which we will build from scratch. Please post your suggestions for a web based application you would like to be the focus for this course. Think of something simple and fun, we'll vote on the best ones.
