“Religion isn’t the opiate of the masses anymore, Karl. IDEs are.“
“The whitespace thing is simply that Python uses indentation to determine block nesting. It forces you to indent everything a certain way, and they do this so that everyone’s code will look the same. A surprising number of programmers hate this, because it feels to them like their freedom is being taken away; it feels as if Python is trampling their constitutional right to use shotgun formatting and obfuscated one-liners.”
The thing is, the forced indenting is one of the reasons I wanted to learn Python. I don’t want work on code that was created by some crackhead programmer who thinks fitting his entire program into a single line will somehow reduce the number of bugs due to faulty statistical analysis. Either way, it’s an enjoyable rant on what programming languages one should learn, by Stevey, whoever that is.
