Over the last year I’ve been teaching programming. The language of choice where i’ve been working is Python (which I had not used very much before going in). Because of that, I’ve been making it a point to code as many of my personal projects as I can in the language. Despite a long “love/hate” relationship over the first few months (python was my first language that uses syntactical whitespace), I’ve really grown to love it.
I’ve also become quite fond of the Flask framework for developing web applications. I love its minimal approach to things, really getting out of the way of things that a web framework doesn’t need much business sticking its nose in.
