Python Refresher   Leave a comment

As well as learning Scheme through SICP, I also use python. In fact python was the language I originally learned programming with ~3 years ago. Of late I’ve had some fun translating a few exercises in SICP into python. However, I’ve noticed that the code I write in python tends not to be as idiomatic as it used to be, and reading some of my _old_ (as in 3+ years) code, I’ve found it difficult to understand what I was doing. Now this may simply be because I had no idea what I was doing as a newbie 3 years ago, but I’ve decided to have a run through the python tutorial again, simply to refresh my memory, and introduce me to some things I didn’t know before.
