Nice! Back to fifty words ("programming" can be chopped if another word
Python is a dynamic, object-oriented, and general-purpose programming
language with extensive libraries. Python's clean syntax and testing
frameworks encourage readable and maintainable code. Python supports
major operating systems, Java, .NET, and mobile/embedded devices.
Integration with C/C++ is straightforward. Adopters include
Google/YouTube, Philips, HP, EVE Online, and Industrial Light and Magic.
I'm using ".NET" instead of "DLR" for the PHBs who come to OSCON; I
think it's the more recognizable term. I'm sticking with requiring
"language" for the same reason, and I'm sticking with YouTube per my
previous post. I'm willing to chop either/both HP and EVE Online if
necessary; I'm requiring Philips because that's the only non-computer
industrial company I found on the success page.
