Python is growing on me

I have to admit that Python is growing on me, and despite my long history of using languages that have curly braces. At first I thought I would be disturbed by their absence but the enforced spacing has actually been liberating for me.

You see, I always enforced specific spacing standards on my c++/Java/PHP code and even on java script if possible. One of my biggest pet peeves was reading sloppy code without enforced spacing standards. With Python those gripes are no more. Now, no matter who wrote the code I can read it easily.

Also, Python feels more like a “real”, programming language than PHP. I have only written Web apps in PHP, but in Python I’m not limited to just Web stuff. And, if I really need to drop into c I can. Python is here to stay, for me anyway.
