Python developer? Look at this

By | December 3, 2012
I'm relatively new to python myself, but this looks like a good place to look with respect to some of the structural conveniences distinguishing python from other languages.

I’ve been programming in python for a few years now, and I’m still often amazed by how clear and DRY well written Python code can be. There are many small tips and tricks I’ve learned over…

    +Sophie Wrobel hmm, MongoDB seems a bit ineffective for graphs (though more effective than I previously guessed; but still, apparently, takes a servercluster for any sizeable graph).
    And for django-mongodb there's, apparently, already a django-mongodb module; what problems does it cause?

    +Gurudatta Raut Python runs server-side. It pumps out content – which could includ HTML and JavaScript – to the web browser. I wouldn't expect to see it replace JavaScript anytime soon.

    +Akshay Bist True, I know a few folk who use Python for shell scripting and other application development too. 🙂

    +Gurudatta Raut Python is a web scripting language. Scala is a functional programming language. Scala does have its uses, but web scripting and server interfaces don't belong to it's strengths. Unless doing currying experiments, map hashing, or writing academic software, I don't see Scala as very practical – for either web scripting or server programming.

    +Akshay Bist Thanks, I've been playing with Django in the past few months. Other than that it's very annoying to work around its ORM for Graph DBs (yes, even despite mongo-engine et al), it's pleasant enough.

    +Gurudatta Raut I have quite a dislike for both JVM and that syntax style (for which reason I could quite prefer coffeescript and nodejs… except the javascript underneath shows a bit too much).

    There are things in Python to discover even after several years of use and not even counting third-party libraries.
