New York and NTLM
Ideas I have so far are:
- the Guggenheim.
While cool, this is a very short list for a potentially very full day of New Yorkin' it up! LET ME KNOW.
I've been chilling in Charlottesville this week, doing a very little bit of helping my parents move in. Major projects so far have included doing reading for Tissue Engineering, finding REU's for this summer, and starting work on my bizarre Frankenstein synchronization web service.
Observations so far:
- Google's documentation consists of a set of examples. This is very useful if you are trying to duplicate their examples. It is less useful if you are not. Would it kill them to provide an annotated list of objects and methods? pydoc is nice but insufficient; the SNR is poor.
- Trust me on this one: suds is the Python SOAP client library that you want to use. It's actively maintained and uses modern Python XML libraries, unlike say all of the other ones.
- NTLM authentication is a pain in the ass, but python-ntlm (a new project!) makes it easy, with urllib2. I'm glad I didn't try to write this app a month ago.
- Microsoft ships an incomplete WSDL file with Exchange and didn't bother to document it. What? Who does that?
Anyway, about those REUs. TTYLz baiii
