Python, as Reviewed by a C++ Programmer

  • Posted on: 21 April 2017

I haven't written here in 8 months. Part of the reason for that is that I've swapped jobs. At the old place, I spent about 90% of my time writing C++, and about 10% of the time using other languages, including Python, Perl, web languages, and last, and oldest, Fortran.

Aside: Did anyone see that movie, Hidden Figures? I loved it. But it made me a little uneasy when I realized people have been writing Fortran for about 60 years. I felt like a part of history? Not sure if good or bad.
