This week, we're updating our course layouts and descriptions. Presentation and materials always gently change over time, but just occasionally there's a need to make a step change to clear out some of the old and roll in the new. That's now happening - but over a long and complex site it's not instant and you'll see sections of the site changing up to and including 19th September.

The future of Python

Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 29 March 2006
Python's a great, OO, compact, stable language - my language of first choice for quite a number of task and a great fun language to give training courses in.

That stability is a great strength, but Python shouldn't stagnate either - so I wasn't unhappy to note that Guido van Rossum, the original Author and leading light behind it, is giving a keynote speech next month on Python 3000 - or Python 3.0 - and the introductory blurb says "For years Guido has been collecting and exploring ideas that were too radical for Python 2.x, and it's time to stop dreaming and start coding.".

I'll be "tracking" Python 3 so that it doesn't take us from left field, but it's too far over the horizon yet to be effecting / requiring detailed consideration in existing coding. I note that Guido is now working for Google, who are big Python users, and his home page tells us that they "sponsor" half of his time to work on Python. All awgres very well for the future.
