I didn't think I did all that much with Python this year other than throwing
together a few "one off" scripts to collate and analyze data from several
thousand tills. These so-called "one off" scripts have been remarkably
useful and they saved one of our teams a lot of time by automating what was
previously a rather time consuming, ad hoc process. That being said, our
client's demand for stats is insatiable.

Last year I did a bit more. We had what appeared to be a performance issue
with online authorisation for a POS system. We suspected that the problems
were coming from an external system, but couldn't prove it given the data
that we had. We used Stackless Python, along with a useful little framework
called Concurrence (http://opensource.hyves.org/concurrence/), to write some
performance testing utilities to demonstrate that the POS system was indeed
fit for purpose and that the cause of the problem was external.
