Python

I have an interest in "Machine Learning". Python seems to be used, or at least associated with, machine learning. I had it in my head to learn Python.

Yesterday, I decided to try an embedded controller version of Python, uPyCraft. I followed this tutorial and in an hour or so, I had Python up and running on an ESP8266 board and was blinking an LED.

I don't like Python. It seems like going backwards.

I have nothing else to say on the matter.

My son was using it about 10 years ago at University. I didn't like it either. When indenting becomes part of the flow control it becomes confusing. I keep thinking I should give it another go, maybe I will just out of curiosity.

Most Google interview questions are based on python - python is the bases for many google "features".

My daughter did some Python programming as part of her Chemistry degree, no idea why?, but she enjoyed it - really pissed me off as I'd been trying to get her interested in programming for years :D

I had taught her to solder at Primary School, and she was the best solderer at Secondary School (including the teacher) as they made a 555 based project, then at University she was the best solderer in the Chemistry department (they built an op-amp based project, a simple light meter).

As I have tried 3D construction using Blender, python is a must... But I agree with Mike.. How the begeebers can you use indentation as flow control... I have umteen text editors ( as many of you have) and not one has the same tabulation...

The only person I have ever seen use tabs to a degree of accuracy is Mike Mclaren... God knows how he does it..
