This is the personal home page of me, Brian Huff. Some people just call me Bex.

Feel free to peruse the photo album, to see the wedding photos of Michelle and I. Our honeymoon in Tahiti was amazing!

You can also see the photos from our trip to Thailand, or our sailing adventure around the Virgin Islands. You can also take a look at some of the articles Ive thrown together about politics and technology. Beware, I'm considered somewhat opinionated...

Monday Tutorials

The Monday tutorials were a mixed bag.

My first tutorial was about object oriented programming in PHP5 was less about PHP5, and more about teaching PHP4 people what object oriented programming is. I didn't learn much, and had a hard time convincing the PHP5 guys that the polymorphism in PHP5 is awkward and wierd. Oh well... its not like its a real language anyway.

The second tutorial, about advanced topics in the Python core framework was very good. It was a great overview of tips and tricks for writing Python, as well as a long brain dump of killer third party Python apps. Paul Prescod really knows his Python. It really got me fired up to use advanced Python a lot more.
