Just thought I'd let everyone know I've started the Python Services API project, which provides a set of classes and and tests that Python developers can use as a basis for integration with the Services module. It's fairly bare-bones at the moment, and I'm by no means and expert Python developer, so feedback and contributions are more than welcome.
Salary: Commensurate with experience

What do you guys think about new API's launched by Facebook last week? It seems like it's going to make dataportability really easy. Here's the announcement on Facebook's site: http://developers.facebook.com/news.php?blog=1&story=108
Are there any drupal apps that enable you to do this already? I know of the Authentication module.
XTND.US releases early preview download of their Drupal API extension for Dreamweaver. Reduce typing and get past plain text editing of Drupal files in Dreamweaver. If you are into Drupal and use, or want to use, Dreamweaver then you really need this extension. Let us save you tons of time by reducing keystrokes with our Drupal API code hints integration for Dreamweaver (API versions 5 & 6). The extension provides code hints and code coloring for every Drupal API method in Drupal 5 & 6.
Not only does it provide full Drupal API code hints (5.x & 6.x) in PHP files, but it also adds support for common Drupal file types, like .module, .theme, .info, .tal, etc., provides code coloring and code hints while editing those file types, treating them similar to common PHP pages. No more tweaking Dreamweaver's configuration manually, just download this free extension and makes Dreamweaver more useful when working on Drupal modules and themes.
View a demo video or download the extension at http://xtnd.us/dreamweaver/drupalapi.

As I have worked with different content management and middleware solutions, one problem I have encountered numerous times, and that I think needs a better solution in drupal, is import and export of data and provision of web services. I think it would be good for drupal to create an import/export framework that would allow drupal developers to make re-usable, sharable import and export modules by implementing PHP objects to a few commmon interfaces and then adding their new import/export type into a central, common import/export module.
This is especially relevant for modern corporate newspapers that need to integrate content from different legacy systems, produce that content, then send it off to a number of different web publishing systems, and then also face the prospect of their systems changing if they are bought or sold. The framework as outlined in the design below could also be a means of implementing REST services (SOAP or XML-RPC would probably require another layer on top of this, though you probably could do it in this framework).Read more

After spending hours with Taxonomy trying to use it to construct a single tiered Library, The problem was that the module of taxonomy was too specific to what it does. I also saw that with in my code, I was running multiple select statements that were unnecessary. In addition my library was small, and I feared using a growing database full of taxonomy data would hinder the performance of my script. Simply put, Taxonomy was to high level for what I needed, and didn't provide the low level functionality and flexibility that I wanted.
I needed to write my own library routine, and modifying taxonomy was not an option. I wasn't using this to classify content, but as a simple place holder for strings. I then went off to write taxonomy 2.0, but found the task was too large on its own to complete in a reasonable time.Read more
