Once again we find ourselves working in python. This is part of a cycle of programming preferences that we have noticed that we go through. Sometimes we want something low-level like C, sometimes we want something easy like Python, other times we want something a bit different, like Forth, Haskell, Ocaml or Lisp.
We don’t have much to say about what we’re doing other than the fact that we are always impressed by how easy it is to use Python, and how often, it manages to even produce nice performant result, or, at the very least, tends to be possible to make fast enough. Of course, there are downsides, the type system sometimes drives us mad when the error happens deep in execution, and then there’s the copy semantics that sometimes trips us up, but since we’re aware of them by now, we’re mostly coping fine.
We don’t have much to say otherwise, just felt that we should use our blog for something in the middle of our other posts that we’re writing and stories that have yet to be finished. 🙂
