      Because half of IQfy is jobless neets that unironically use Gentoo + some niche window manager and using "hard" software is the only thing that gives them any semblance of value in their life. Python is the antitheses of this as it allows some beginner to spin up a webserver in 30 mins (if that) and have a working website which is something that takes IQfyentoo man days to do in their precious C.

      both true.
      most of IQfy doesn't understand the concept of knowing multiple languages with different usecases. they think software engineering is just writing C code that does something as fast as possible and interpreted scripting languages/garbage collectors/dynamic typing are BLOAT in any and all contexts.

        Except that interpreted gc dt is being used in places where it is BLOAT and shouldn’t be used.

        you joke, but i've seen too many python programs that basically act as extremely shitty schedulers / supervisors of OS processes to work around this terrible design decision. i'd argue it's the only complete parallel programming pattern in the language.

          It isn't, threading/async is the only correct way, that's because if you aren't I/O bound you're moronic for using Python.

            right, so you acknowledge that threading/async is not a complete solution on python. works perfectly on node, go, c++, java... probably almost any other language.

            it's a moot point honestly. most of the dumbasses writing python aren't about to try parallelizing their code (and then they do, we end up with another instance of

            100% agreement on not replacing FORTRAN. it can feed a C/FORTRAN backend but it shouldn't be solving anything itself.

      Agreed, and I don't know how it became so popular in that context. Although...I fricking hate Java because all the frameworks seem to be over engineered "academic OOP." .NET can also be that way sometimes.

      >knowing multiple languages

      Yes and no. Once you've picked up one it's much easier to pickup another one. What takes time is learning the fine details, the style and the design patterns which are common in that language. Also being familiar with the common libraries and frameworks so you're not constantly looking shit up.

      But yeah, if you're a good SE in C/C++, C#, Java, etc then Python is easy to pickup.

    It's mostly filled with idiots who defend it to be honest.
    It's absolutely trash. It's design is trash from the ground of and much of the weird behavior is clearly simply a product of how the interpreted was programmed and Guido not even considering what would happen if someone closed over loop variables and the 2to3 transition was a disaster anyone with experience could see coming but we it again with Wayland:
    >Someone comes with some new technology
    >WHY ARE PEOPLE NOT SWITCHING? THIS NEW THING IS BETTER. I DON'T GET IT! YOU SHOULD ALL SWITCH
    The mentality of people who program for fun rather than for money who don't realize that even if your new thing should be better, switching costs people time and effort and thus money and they effectively have to pay a price to switch so it should be worth it.

    Someone has to be paid to rewrite python2 code into python3 so it has to be worth the money. Python3 needs to be so much better that it's worth the cost of switching and it isn't.

      Blame H1B for that. The program shouldn't exist, and nobody bothers obeying the relatively lax rules it lays down because gov doesn't bother enforcing them ever.

        You annotate all the function parameters and return types as well. And what you do is run mypy --strict to check everything and tell you what's wrong or missing. It catches a lot of stuff

          mypy is a good idea until you include a library and understand why nobody uses this

        Also in that int example you likely don't have to annotate it since it can infer it's an int

      Python is my favorite scripting language but I guess I don't represent /g's opinions.

      Indeed, Ruby's syntax is very nice, I think the best after Python. It's a sad and unfair world where pieces of shit like PHP and JS are more popular than Ruby.

    I don't hate it, but it's dense to read. Although I like Java and JavaScript, so I am biased. I find that when reading Python you think you understand what you read, but you need to go back and read it again.
