Because programming in Python makes me feel happy and contented, while

Or in my case, Python made me code, Java made me brew java.
ymmv

You have to be trolling I would think. For most people I think they
would like to code in Python if they had a personal choice. But for
professional reasons they are likely forced to code in Java because of
the sheep mentality of the large corporate drone-dom that's out there.
To me, languages such as Smalltalk, Python, and Ruby allow the problems
to solve themselves in code that's easier to read and requires less
verbiage. Meanwhile all of Java's semicolons, curly braces, and
syntactical hoops leaves my fingers tired and my eyes crossed.

Java is a coffee, and coffee comes from exploited Ethiopians (they do
have some damn fine coffee, though). Most of us prefer to exploit
Englishmen instead. (damn them and their humor!)

functional programming, list comprehensions, decorators, duck typing,
generators, dynamism, introspection, prettier code, simpler grammar
[see digg and /. for the graphs], and, of course, the trolls.

Yeah, gavino has been trolling comp.lang.lisp for quite some time. For
the life of me I can't understand why he would troll comp.lang.pytho n
when comp.lang.lisp is there.

He trolls other groups as well. Smalltalk for example -->
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....7227555661a2cd.
There are at least a dozen recent posts where he asks some obvious
trollling line of questioning...

I want to learn to program and I can't seem to pick a direction. A
java guy I know makes a lot of $, but a lot of reading I have done
shows lisp smalltalk and haskell to be really nice, as well as of
course python. It seems python is 4/5 way to lisp yet has a lot of
people using it for practical things. I also hear that it dominates in
leaving readable code behind it. Am I listening to too much marketing
from non dominant tools? I hear again and again how java is just
putrid. My instict says learn something like scheme but my smal
experience sees only java people making money.. aggkk!!

I did it. I proposed python as the main language for our next CAD/CAM software because I think that it has all the potential needed for it. I'm not sure yet if the decision will get through, but something I'll need in this case is some experience-based set of rules about how to use python in this context. For example... is defining readonly attributes in classes worth the hassle ? Does duck-typing scale well in complex

Hi, I've been thinking about Python vs. Lisp. I've been learning Python the past few months and like it very much. A few years ago I had an AI class where we had to use Lisp, and I absolutely hated it, having learned C++ a few years prior. They didn't teach Lisp at all and instead expected us to learn on our own. I wasn't aware I had to uproot my thought process to "get" it and wound up feeling like a moron. In learning Python I've...

Hello, What is the Pythonic way of implementing getters and setters. I've heard people say the use of accessors is not Pythonic. But why? And what is the alternative? I refrain from using them because they smell "Javaish." But now my code base is expanding and I'm beginning to appreciate the wisdom behind them. I welcome example code and illustrations.

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

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
