I was about to say that I'd ride 130km just to hear people talking about #Python, but apparently I was upgraded to presenter, for some reason...
On the way back home, I noticed I wrote two small scripts in #Python today, for personal reasons.
But I want to learn #Rust, and there is very little I need to write these days... except this kind of script.
So, for the next month, I'll rewrite the scripts in Rust, and write every single stupid script I need in Rust.
It's freaking cold, but it's time to get out of bed and go to our #Python meetup.
And then, play Eldritch Horror this afternoon.
(I know there is Scrappy/BeautifulSoup for #Python, but meh.)
Seeing #Python 3.8 release notes and all I can think of is "This is going downhill since Guido is not the BDFL..."
Amber Brown: Batteries Included, But They're Leaking
I understand some of Brown points about #Python STL -- why Tkinter is there? -- and I feel that the STL should actually provide the foundation for libraries.
I never did my #Introductions but...
Software developer for 20 years -- yeah, I started working professionally when I was 12 and didn't drop the field yet. I used most languages around, but I'm a fan of #Python and #Clojure, although these days I work with #Java and I want to play with #Rust.
I'm also a biker, and that's why I hate when it rains.
#Python pro-tip: Do **NOT** use a tuple for a structured data.
