    @C0D4 Honestly, I'd take modern JavaScript over Python any day of the week

    @12bitfloat "modern" 😂😂😂😂
    No, oh no, I'm talking hard core plain as rice Javascript.

    @C0D4 Well, like ES2021. Dear god I'm not talking about these god awful "revolutionary" front end frameworks

    Did you try Perl, Cobol and C?

    the best thing about python: it's not javascript.

    Beautiful is better than ugly.
    Explicit is better than implicit.
    Simple is better than complex.
    Complex is better than complicated.
    Flat is better than nested.
    Sparse is better than dense.
    Readability counts.
    Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.
    Although practicality beats purity.
    Errors should never pass silently. Unless explicitly silenced.
    In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
    There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it. Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.
    Now is better than never. Although never is often better than *right* now.
    If the implementation is hard to explain, it's a bad idea. If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.
    Namespaces are one honking great idea -- let's do more of those!

    Python is a beautiful language.
    On the other hand, most python *code* is garbage.

    Looks like Python suffers from the Java curse then.

    Kinda; I'd posit that Java is cursed by overzealous writers of abstract factories of factories; people tend to take the language too seriously. Python's curse is that it's very easy to write code that works; so people tend to think that Python means hacking something together with no care for software engineering principles.

    @rantydev: I actually meant the fact that it is used as a teaching language and therefore a shitton of noobs use it...

    But yes, the Java class trees are rooting too damn deep - even if there might be a legit use case for a ManagerManagementServiceFactoryManagerRepositoryManagerFactoryFactory somewhere.

    Very true indeed.
