I was very happy to accept an invite from Alan Pope of the Ubuntu UK Screencasting team last weekend to do an interview for their monthly podcast (ogg/mp3s here).

I’ve started another Club series to show you how to use pyWin32 on Windows to talk to COM-aware applications like Excel.
Personally I’ve used Excel as a simple charting tool for quick science research. I figured that several screencasts on this leading to the creation of a Python COM server would make for a good [...]
[This is a re-print of the monthly Update Email that is sent to all of our Members]
