On Python Advcocacy

by Jeremy Jones

Steve Holden posted an excellent blog post entitled "Python is Not a Religion" on the topic of Python advocacy the other day, laying out the need for common sense, passion, and planning. Python is a good answer for a large range of programming problems. However, it is not the only good answer for this same range of programming problems. Nor is it even an answer for another (albeit smaller) set of programming problems. I'm all for Python advocacy as anyone who frequents this blog can attest, but it needs to be done in the right way and for the right reasons. I think Steve helps get us closer to both of those. Great post, Steve!
