Thanks for the input. ACtualy i just started programming in python since aug
2007 and i m doing my masters research on it. So i learnt python in quite
less amount of time. But otherwise i am good in c and c++. I am giving my
first interview in python so i dont know what kind of questions they might
ask me. So i wanted to have some list of quiestions which would give me an
idea as how should i prepare for python and wxpython.
