I mostly code in Python. Do a lot of spatial analysis and other GIS work. Some Django and a tiny bit of JS front-end stuff. Have done a lot of number-crunching in Fortran. I work with hydrology and flood modelling.

comment Why do ECWs go missing when exporting MXD to PDF with ArcPy?
Thanks, I suspected it was a memory issue. This is good for explaining, but I still don't understand why it happens externally but not within ArcGIS.

comment How to perform a table look-up using Python in ArcGIS 10.0?
I would guess you have work restrictions preventing you from upgrading to 10.1? If not, just do the upgrade, it's free and surprisingly painless.

MakeFeatureLayer_management imports shapefiles to layers. If you already have a layer file, use arcpy.mapping.Layer("path_to_layer_file") to create the layer object.
