Python = teh roxx0rz
Authored by: jimhill on Feb 05, '05 01:22:08PM

I used to complain about Python's indentation scoping requirement, then I realized that every programmer worth his salt already uses whitespace for scoping. The real benefit comes when you're working on multi-programmer projects...I've never been able to read someone else's code as quickly and comprehensibly as when it's in Python.

This is by no means a shot at Ruby (which is a wonderful language in its own right), just a comment that the most typical "negative" I see levied toward Python is actually a tremendous positive.

Oh, and Rob: You really owe it to yourself to learn Python. How's that for a hint?
