Well it’s been a full week since I’ve started working with the Python language and I’m proud to say that I’m off to a great start.
I did what I’m sure most of us would do and pushed the textbook a side and jumped right into trying to develop something.
So far I’ve installed and played around with both Django and the Bottle frameworks.
From the few articles and comments I’ve come across I believe the Django framework maybe the industry standard amongst the Python development community.
But in my opinion if your looking for a Python framework with a smaller learning curve Bottle would be my suggestion. But note I haven’t tried CherryPy yet but looking at the documentation it seems pretty similar to Bottle.
So in regards to the week 1 goals I set for myself I can with confidence check this one off the list.
My experience with the Python language so far has been a great one. I really like it. I like the fact that the syntax it not hard to understand. And I like that it does enforce a bit of a strict structure.
For example if you want to use a Time function you have to import it first.
I also like that with Python, GUI programming is possible, I just read about this so my knowledge is extremely limited when it comes to this topic. But it’s nice to know this option is available if I ever think about going down this road.
Well my week 2 goal is to build a simple website. Right now I don’t think this will be a problem. If anything it’s trying to carve out the time to do so.
