Traits article published in February issue of Python Magazine

The February issue of “Python Magazine” has just been published and it includes an article on Traits!

The title is, Reactive Programming with Traited Python, and the tag is, “The Traits package provides explicit typing, reactive programming, and fast user interface development, which enable rapid prototyping of applications that scale up to a full-featured production implementation.”

You can see the cover and the blurb at http://pythonmagazine.com/c/issue/view/92 , but you’ll have to buy the issue to read it.

I think it’s a great article that you should read, but I’m slightly biased since I wrote it.
