I'm 35 now and while I did some BASIC programming back in
'80-'82 on my Apple ][ 16K system in between playing Castle
Wolfenstein, Lode Runner, and Wizardry, I come to Python
programming from a FoxPro background, and have found Python to
be easy to learn, capable, dynamic, fun to use, easy to read,
easy to prototype, easy to debug, and did I say fun to use?
Building data-centric 3-tier desktop and web business apps is
what I'm using Python for, and I'm thrilled with the new
decimal type and the general improvement of Python at a nice
and steady rate.
