I’ve recently started playing with Go for sort of an odd reason: to prove that my wife is ridiculously lucky. Not for marrying me, though I’d certainly like to think that’s the case. My wife has a history of winning games by an astounding margin and one of these margins has been bugging me for years. Go helped me show just how ridiculously lucky she is.
So, I’ve been teaching myself Python lately. This is partly due to work and partly due to wanting to do this for a few years now. Pretty quickly after I moved to Linux full time many years ago, the whole concept of programming and scripting really excited me. I quickly learned that with bash, I could make the computer do what would normally take me multiple hours of clicking here and clicking there and still not getting done.
