The Best Part About Python
November 11, 2013
…is that you must write pretty code. No exceptions.
In creating a game for the XO-PC using PyGame, my team collaborates using Git, the industry standard for version control. Github’s ticketing system allows us to easily assess the progress of the project and see who contributes what. Python is awesome because its sparse syntax (specifically, the omission of curly braces) makes it trivial to merge commits.
Not once have I had to fix conflicts…Python’s amazing syntax and indentation structure takes care of that fuss.
On the web, I’m still a PHP guy, but Python is growing on me…slowly.
