I've been using go just because I'm pretty sure it's going to replace most modern languages in my life, but when it comes to comparing how the two languages read, python hands down. If you have any problems, feel free to file an issue for this tutorial in the. That's why I sometimes look at statically typed languages as just another layer of data validation with regards to web development While there is a nugget of truth in your statements, the generalisations are so excessive that the overall point is completely wrong. Used to hack Clinton's e-mail server No No Machine learning Yes Yes Sexy? Python is also widely used in building games, server maintenance and in making art and music. Perhaps they got it to work nice, but that sounds more like a case for a more general language. Can you give a example which basically does the same as the above mentioned code? Most cases of 'ditching X for Go' are in reality 'I think one of my projects in X would be better off written in Go.
Make each major subsystem into an object, connect to it through the mini-interfaces it provides, and test its consumers by stubbing those mini-interfaces, not the whole object. You'll need integration tests and it's easier to write tests in a dynamic language where IoC is a language feature than static languages. Depending on the vendor, a. Zbig Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I think this is a very good tutorial, but I suspect most beginners will find it daunting, at least if they are striving for full comprehension as they go along.
It is mainly used in data science and holds a good number of libraries for scientific computing. Yes Suitable for Desktop App Development? To say that concurrency is possible in Python, but it is not idiomatic in Python, would be an understatement. I agree with the currently-most upvoted comment here that I really value these kinds of war stories. . Which is a real pity as there would have been a few good points raised in your rant if you hadn't have jumped off in the deep end with your ridiculous generalisations. You've probably read that, if your Python programs are too slow, you can speed them up by moving things into C.
Personally, I do love me a type system. A Logpoint is like a breakpoint except that it logs a message to the console and doesn't stop the program. The weird split between the interface description file and the code file. This command is very convenient for testing just a part of a file. The early days of Python2 and even the late days of Python1.
Berm Hello Peter, I need some advice, I build a program in vb. But I'm still stuck :p Sorry for my English, I'm not a native speaker. I look at Ruby or Go. On the other hand, when it comes to networking services, Go has become a breather. So out of the 5, I think only Python really made significant inroads in the software niche that Go has started to make a name in.
So, to reiterate: concurrency is possible in Python, but it is an awkward affair that often feels bolted on, fractures the experienced Python programmers into different factions Twisted is better! Its syntax is concise and low ceremony; its types get out of the way because the compiler can infer them. For anyone who isn't a Go developer reading this: this sucks, but it isnt a deal breaker, I still love Go, I just hope the tooling here improves. I have created some coding standards, but they were not always followed, and this makes code hard to read. Now it is useful, reliable and well understood. The biggest reason I like Go is because it makes it really hard for engineers to create huge, complex abstractions. Yes Can be used to invoke demons? Would you agree with this characterization? But well, maybe I could have written better code, better libraries, maybe multiprocessing would have been painful though with multiprocessing.
I have my own Go Heka story. The problems I observed with Go was that its regex seemed to be slower than Python, and memory usage was way higher. Configure and run the debugger Let's now try debugging our simple Hello World program. Python is being used extensively on. Not all problems require a concurrent solution but for the ones that do Go has a lot to offer. Concurrency Go uses called goroutines.
End to end backpressure for which channels are quite good doesn't seem like the best option for 1:N broadcasts, because then the slowest receiver slows down all others. I myself have been coding in python for over 7 years now and trying to learn and switch to go. I personally wouldn't write a web app in Go at least, anything beyond the most basic admin interface. I'd love to replace my entire stack with Go but I can't. My take on the points mentioned: 1.
Go is significantly faster than Python; this is fine and expected. The whole notion that I would need to set up and configure one of these made my spidey sense tingle. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Sorry, but now you're just descending into unashamed language bigotry. They both have their strengths and weaknesses.
