I’ve been learning Python. It’s an interpreted language that is similar to Perl, Java, JavaScript, and Lisp. Well, I’m not exactly being honest here. Python isn’t similar to any of those languages syntactically, but it has many of the underlying concepts as those languages. Perhaps more importantly, Python is fun to program in, it’s pretty fast, it has support for bignums, the code is easy to read, and it’s clean.

I ran into a professor from MIT who told me that a major AI book is being rewritten from Lisp into Python. There are some major websites that are now in Python.

Python runs on Windows, Unix, the Mac, and many other computers as well. You can even compile it into Java bytecodes. My guess is that more and more serious web developers will be moving to Python in the coming years.
