Why Python Sucks

Yash Mehrotra (~yash2)




Just how every DjangoCon has a Why Django Sucks, I think this PyCon also deserves one.

I'm going to discuss python gotchas, pitfalls and things that may make one cringe. We'll also discuss why your favourite language is not the best out there, and how using Python for everything may eventually bite you back.

I'll also touch on the subject of the 2 vs 3 split and how it is harming the progress of Python overall, then I'll additionally speak about how you can be productive and fast using statically-typed languages.

In short, it will be a rant about the dark side of Python.
