age of Python programmers

One thing I've always kind of wondered is what is the average age of a
Python programmer?? What age groups use Python?? Something to think
about....

Most Python programmers I know are 40+. I am myself 47 (born in december
1956).

regards Gerrit

P.S.,

how many teeners are still programming? Most teeners I know build
websites, but they don't program.

I myself am only 14. I've been programming for two years with Python. I've
tried C++, but found it a pain in the area that Preparation H fixes. I got
started programming with Python as a result of a 4-H computer science
project. I was looking for a free, easy to learn language and happily found
it with Python. I'm currently interested in the network-centered areas of
Python.

I have reached the grand old age of 30.

I think C++ has prematurely aged me, so Im hoping Python can roll back
the clock.

I'm 19. The only other Python programmer I know personally is 21.
Congrats on discovering Python at 14; back then I thought VB was a godsend. ;)

I think everyone who used Python will agree that its syntax is the best thing going for it. It is very readable and easy for everyone to learn. But, Python does not a have very good macro capabilities, unfortunately. I'd like to know if it may be possible to add a powerful macro system to Python, while keeping its amazing syntax, and if it could be possible to add Pythonistic syntax to Lisp or Scheme, while keeping all of the...

In different articles that I have read, persons have constantly eluded to the productivity gains of Python. One person stated that Python's productivity gain was 5 to 10 times over Java in some in some cases. The strange thing that I have noticed is that there were no examples of this productivity gain (i.e., projects, programs, etc.,...). Can someone give me some real life examples of productivity gains using Python as opposed other...

I'll be a college freshman this fall, attending Florida Institute of Tech studying electrical engineering.

I mean other than sysadmins, programmers, and web-site developers? I have heard of some DBAs who use a lot of python. I suppose some scientists. I think python is used in bioinformatics. I think some math and physics people use python. I suppose some people use python to learn "programming" in general. Python would do well as a teaching language.

Hello, IIRC, I once saw an explanation how Python doesn't have "variables" in the sense that, say, C does, and instead has bindings from names to objects. Does anyone have a link? Thanks, Ami

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
