Brought some books about Python (Oreilly's) last year and read much of goodies about python but will learn about it when I finished learning about Ruby language with Rails and Agility.

IMHO, I don't think much Malaysian have heard Python and Ruby unless they exposed to OSS. But If you form such MYPUG (Malaysian Python User Group) this may help growth of Python user base.

it's been around for quite some time already, unfortunately from what i see the market isn't as good for Python developers compared to PHP / JAVA / MS based dev. platform and such.

hence you see more people focusing on those.

Python in Windows is excellent.

There is a good IDE.
Stani's Python Editor (SPE)
Spe is an Integrated Development Editor for the Python
programming language (fully compatible with Blender).

You can also create GUI programs using wxPython.

And, with py2exe, you can even make python scripts into exe programs that don't need Python installed in the end-users pc.

Cheers, ;)

AFAIK, there seems there isn't much people that is using Python for a significant amount of their work in Malaysia.

There seems to be some activity in Django, check the following Google group discussion:
http://groups.google.com/group/django-user...9793cd9d5bda783

After some digging it seems we actually have a Python User Group:
http://www.python.my/

And their corresponding Google group, but not much activity so far
http://groups.google.com/group/pythonmy/we...-malaysia?hl=en

And of course, for anything "important", a Facebook group wink.gif
http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=32572091379

Hope this is useful for some people.

My company almost entire backend is in Python. Since it is backend, we have been quite slow adopting py3. Even so we are still on 2.5 (debian stable default). From statistic analysis, automation to daily 100millions+ 'transaction'... all in python. And 2.5 leak memory in subprocess module so need workaround. sad.gif People up there reluctant to even go 2.6 as it solved the leak issue.

True. Ruby is way more elegant.
My main beef with Python is that it cannot represent unambiguous lambda expressions. (at least, to the best of my knowledge) sad.gif

Still, Python does have it's place.

I use python like everyday. Don't seem to find much python users from Malaysia. Most of them prefer other languages. But I don't use it for web development, i use it for automating task, statistics calculation, GUI etc.

I personally think, if you're a Linux user, and you don't know python, then you're not a real Linux user (specifically desktop users). Since you can find a lot programs written in python in Linux desktop.

you can pretty much use python without knowing, and you don't even need to know it.

fedora infrastructure is predominantly python. you don't realize it.


Added on November 16, 2011, 12:03 pmOh btw, just a little heads up
there will be a python meetup in a place near KLCC, in Febuary. Because we have visitor wanted to visit the local python community.

The usual suspect in python malaysia already know, so you guys can join too.

Don't have a proper event page yet, sorry, I got 2 month to do that....

I would attend but I'm afraid that when I attend the meetup all are professionals, while I'm just a hobbyist. sad.gif

Btw, free registration or you need to pay for ticket or fee or something?

Wouldn't blame them, Malaysia is pretty backward when it comes to IT adoption. Where as rails is pretty hot, outside Malaysia, there is not as many rails dev around here.

Python is also pretty wide spread. Again, not as many use it as well. But then a bulk of IT is here in "enterprise" which mostly play it safe.

Python allows only one statement per lambda, because it does not have block marker. What does Ruby's lambda notation look like?

Anyone use python 3.0? Is it good?

I once thought make the print statement as a function is stupid. Turns out it's a good idea if you want to print the value of a variable using lambda. smile.gif

Hi python_king
I have been coding python on n off for years, if I can at work then I will us e python. One thing I found is that there arent any python programmers in Singapore either (handful, rest self-proclaimed and other's wannabes) and it was hard to find peers if we needed help. So I decided to keep python language to a minimum in my team. I was the only one doing any programming on needed basis.

I still like python and while I recently gave up programming (for work) I use my spare time to write python code for things I need.

Its great you bring this up on Lowyat, I would like to know as well if there is a UG across the causeway where I could possibly be welcome smile.gif

edit: I beg to differ from those who say Python market not good etc. Python proogrammers either can or cannot (there is no on between can google search , fake an interview etc, neither can it be learned overnight like PHP). Python programmers are well sought after and VERY well paid. secondly, Python is in use mostly for backend. Python gained tractioon for being very easy to use for Cloud Automation as well as Data mining/ visualization. It is also the easiest route to GPU computing (well its getting better).

this is my small side site on tech/programming/webmaster http://webmastersupport.com I am getting a few programming buddies to start contributing here.

I see a lot more love than hate about Python. The syntax is very elegant in my opinion and removes a lot of the bloat code that you see in other languages.

It was at least 3 years of "programming" before I actually started to understand the fundamentals of software development, methodologies etc. Language is only like 10% of the equation.

Still using the language now and then.

Atom is just a text editor. The syntax highlighting is good. I prefer opening a separate terminal to launch the programs rather than having everything in an IDE. It's free and opensource so you can just try it out.
