  • Spooky games for Halloween

    I love spooky and eerie things all year round, but Halloween is an especially great excuse to get in the mood with some creepy games.

(Related, if you are interested in learning Python/Django, and whether you’re a girl or not a girl, I highly recommend the Django Girls Tutorial).
