re: Why all this hate about Python? VIEW POST

re: Python was the first language I learnt, and the first I could consider myself any kind of expert in. I love that it has clearly stated design goal...

Atleast treating white space (indent) as a language structure always seems to me odd.


The combination of braces to implement structure while using indentation to visually convey structure seems odd to me. Seems like a violation of the DRY principle.

Python removes that redundancy by using indentation for both, that way visual structure is always consistent with actual structure.

Whereas many other languages are redundant in that respect, which does not respect the DRY principle.

Wait, did I already say that?
