Mind that age!

This blog post is 17 years old! Most likely, its content is outdated. Especially if it's technical.

I was reading a thread about "Lisp development with macros faster than Python development?" on comp.lang.python when I stumbled across a little statement by Raymond Hettinger, a core Python developer:

"With Lisp or Forth, a master programmer has unlimited power and expressiveness. With Python, even a regular guy can reach for the stars."


Doug Rosser

In all honesty, good programmers can write elegant, maintainable code in any language. What I like most about Python is that "problematic" code can be read and maintained more easily than any other language.
