REASON NUMBER ONE: Python language is really simple.
I find Python a very simple language. As someone who entered into programming with C++, when I decided to learn Python it was like a breath of fresh air escaping a hell full of curly braces, weird and complicated header files and complicated methods to write to text files. Python just made sense. I had written a bunch of cool console programs in no time. Compare that to barely being able to write something more than enter a number and text prints out “RPG’s” I used to make in C++. Python is great for beginners and can do lots out of the box without much hassle.
REASON NUMBER TWO: Python is elegant.
REASON NUMBER THREE: Python is powerful.
REASON NUMBER FOUR: If you mess up, Python will tell you.
Python dev: Oh no, looks like I forgot that : over there. Thanks for telling me Python, before I deployed a broken application to all of my customers!
Python tells you when something is wrong. There’s nothing more to it.
REASON NUMBER FIVE: Python is just “nice” to use.
Then again, I am not anywhere near as experienced as many other devs who have most likely used both and have a much more refined and less one sided view of the coding world.
My opinions will most likely become more realistic and fact based with time.
Thank you to Guido Van Rossum for making such a beautiful and enjoyable programming language! 🐍🐍
