One such project I was looking forward to was getting back into Flash development, but without my MacBook Pro that's not going to be possible. Instead I think I'll do something I've been meaning to do for ages - start learning Python. I haven't given Python enough of a go yet to do it justice, and I've seen it touted on the forums here as a good language for both beginners and programmers who just want to "get things done."
So I'm thinking of spending a day or so learning the ropes of Python, and maybe Pygame as well. I've made a thread to ask for recommendations about approaches to learning the language. I'm thinking I might attempt to make a game as a project, although I haven't a clue yet as to what would be a sensible target game to pick.
I'll see how far I get. I'm yet to budget up the time I have with what I'd like to do.
