For years I've heard (and occasionally been part of) religious Perl vs Python language debates. I've always been firmly on the Python side of the fence. While I have made some great use of perl in my time, I love being able to actually re-read my code without having to decipher it first. Python has always seemed like a much easier language to work in to me.
So, given my firm stance in this debate, I'm a little shocked after seeing
Carl Karsten's video. Want to know why Ctrl-C doesn't work in threaded python apps? Why threading in python can actually slow you down? Why not all Python C bindings are not born equal? If you have even a general interest in python, I greatly recommend checking out this talk. It'll shake your faith. :)
