A couple of summers ago I learned Python and Django via Hello Web App. I absolutely loved the structure of this book and thought Python was super fun to work with. This year I'm working in Mithril with the idea being to eventually get into React.
React is obviously a super popular topic at the moment, with job opportunities out the wazoo. But I want to revisit Python again, just for fun. I'm curious what the overall mood is currently on Python? What I've come to gather about this field is that just when you think something is super cool and worth studying, twitterers start going nuts with how garbage it is. The whiplash is fierce.
Questions for you kind people:
- Why do you like or dislike Python?
- What have you built with Python and why was it the lang of choice?
- Django yes/no? Preferred framework?
Does front-end development as a we know it still exist; or has the role evolved into something we no longer recognise? As with evolution in nature, the evolution of "front-end" has resulted in several distinct flavours --- and in my opinion --- an identity crisis.
