Open Recall is a new space on The H for those things which are too small to package as news but are worth the linkage. Open Recall collates the interesting stories which didn't quite make the cut. This edition is all about programming...

  • Python on the go – You're on the road and don't want to miss your Python fix? The PortablePython project has just released version of its implementation of Python designed for running the language from a USB stick. It includes libraries such as NumPy, SciPy, Django, PyGame, PyQt and PyGTK.

  • Learn Scala the fun wayScalatron is a programming game that aims to teach you Scala in an entertaining manner. As the player, you write Scala code for bots that compete for energy in a virtual arena and try to survive. You can play on your own or organise a tournament between multiple players. Follow @scalatron on Twitter for updates on the software.

  • JavaScript specification discord – The freshly launched JSFixed initiative has different ideas about the future of JavaScript than the developers behind the specification. JSFixed believes that the ECMA TC39 group, centered around JavaScript inventor Brendan Eich, is not allowing enough input from the community that uses the language on a daily basis.
