Your first coding language: what's wrong with Python
I saw this post the other day that got me thinking about how I learnt to #code.
There was a tweet yesterday about how major python libraries mostly aren't written in python, and it implied that this was something that should be fixed. I take it as revealed preference: experts don't like working in python. It's also a terrible language for beginners. pic.twitter.com/wBVJDNPCiJ— David Mimno (@dmimno) July 13, 2023
It was a great opportunity for me to revisit a post I wrote nearly a year ago on the subject: So you want to code? (Lawyer Edition)
