I didn't know quite where to put this topic... Has anyone here worked with Python? I have been looking at it and it looks very interesting especially JPython. Does anyone have any actual experience using it that they would like to share?
I did a bit of hacking of a web application running under Zope (which uses Python as its implementation language). Python is seductively simple and powerful and the code you write looks so "clean". I still use Java and even C++ for all my real projects, though, as Python is not typically available on the corporate systems I work with. (Most of the systems I work on don't even have Perl, and anything newer than that is just too scary for the decision makers). There was a big focus on Python in a recent issue of Linux Journal, and I can imagine I'd pick it up again if I was working on a Linux project.
I saw this thread and noticed that some jerk was using a name very close to mine, "Tom P". I was going to tell him to fix his friggin' display name when I realized that the posts were two years old and the jerk was me! I feel like I have stepped into a time tunnel when I read this stuff! P.S. That means that I really have 87 more posts then my profile says!
