“My take on that is if you are employed as a professional Python software developer, then not writing tests is lazy, unprofessional, and unacceptable…period.”

“Robert mentioned that Ward Cunnigham’s idea of “clean code”, was that it was obvious what a function did. This isn’t as easy as it sounds. In fact, this is a lot of hard work, even with a language as beautiful, and elegant as Python.”

“”Powerful tools kill quickly, and in surprising ways, and we are going to be careful…. ” Often in a failed or troubled Python project, you will see a lot of code where someone was making a mess by trying to be cute.”
