I have been wanting to learn python for some time, mostly because a lot of my favority open source projects use it and seek people with that expertise, so finally here I am taking my first steps with python.
There are two things that really catch my eye about python:
– Doesn’t use brackets to group statement
– Doesn’t use semicolons to end lines
These two semantic rules of python freak me out a little, maybe because I am so used to brackets and semicolons that I can’t imagine a programming language that doesn’t use them. But they claim this makes programming easier, so I hope they are right.
