Python: Programming Is Fun Again!

A comic from xkcd.com:

My thought exactly.

Any programmer can learn it in an afternoon and be productive in a day. As a bonus, the code is naturally easier to read, so after half a year, I can pick up my own old code again in 10 seconds. And I'm just an average amateur programmer. (Amateur = doing it for love; Professional = doing it for money. Look at the etymology here and here.)

All CS students should at least know about it. I don't understand why introductory programming classes in Thailand are being taught with C, C++, C#, or Java while half the class would copy the other half's homework. No learning happens in half of the brains!

My posts about Python in the past are here.
