Philip Zeyliger commented on AVRO-52:
-------------------------------------

Sure.  Would be great for the quickstart(s) to be part of the project itself, though, so that
they're easier to find.

> AVRO/python will eventually need something analogous to http://wiki.apache.org/thrift/ThriftUsagePython,
the Thrift Lightning talk at http://x1024.net/blog/, or  http://code.google.com/apis/protocolbuffers/docs/pythontutorial.html
.  While the API is still being developed, however, it may make sense to simply have a unit
test that illustrates reasonable usage of the APIs.  This can also serve as a place that users
look at to learn the APIs and comment on their friendliness and pythonicity.
