Python

When we are software developers, there is always one time that we  need to develop something in a different language that we had never used before. Sometimes it can be frightfull (but it’s a great challenge).

In the beggining of June I started my adventures with Python.

Yes, I know, this is nothing new! But, again, I never had tried anything with it! Althought it was a pleaseant surprise!

Not only it has a simple syntax, it has also a great documentation and modules for a LOT of things!

we can even understand what the filosophy of python is when we look at the easter egg when we input on the python console import this

The Zen of Python, by Tim Peters

Beautiful is better than ugly.
Explicit is better than implicit.
Simple is better than complex.
Complex is better than complicated.
Flat is better than nested.
Sparse is better than dense.
Readability counts.
Special cases aren’t special enough to break the rules.
Although practicality beats purity.
Errors should never pass silently.
Unless explicitly silenced.
In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
There should be one– and preferably only one –obvious way to do it.
Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you’re Dutch.
Now is better than never.
Although never is often better than *right* now.
If the implementation is hard to explain, it’s a bad idea.
If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.
Namespaces are one honking great idea — let’s do more of those!

A good language with multiple programming paradigms support that is flexible, easy to read/write.

You will find there all the documentation and tool needed to start developing in python right away!
