Since search is unavailable at the moment, I would like to ask what people think of python compared to languages like c++ and java? Right now the core of our computer science ciriculum is Java, but next fall they are changing the core over to Python. I haven''t heard much about it really. So, tell me, what is the scoop with Python?

What are your personal thoughts about it if you have used it?


I think Python is an extremely well-designed language and very fun to develop in. GUIs are a piece of cake to develop in Python - not much harder than using a visual form designer like VB or Visual C#'s. The source is very easy to read and the standard library is very impressive. Finally, Python is backed by a very active community and there are many tutorials and a lot of free source code available to learn from.

In short, I think Python is an excellent language. I use it everyday.
