Example text

We were one of the first open source projects at the time to have something like this, and it’s been relatively widely copied.

Guido: I think it became necessary as the community grew and I wasn’t necessarily able to judge every proposal on its value by itself.

I really don’t think there’s a simple answer, and in fact I think it’s probably the wrong question. You don’t want to hire Python programmers. You want to hire smart, creative, self-motivated people. PYTHON 27 If you check job ads for programmers, nearly all of them include a line about being able to work in a team. What is your opinion on the role of the team in programming? Do you still see space for the brilliant programmer who can’t work with others? Guido: I am with the job ads in that one aspect.

20 CHAPTER TWO There are other criteria that determine whether it makes more sense to add something to the language or it makes more sense to add something to the library, because if it has to do with the semantics of namespaces or that kind of stuff, there’s really nothing you can do besides changing the language. On the other hand, the extension mechanism was made powerful enough that there is an amazing amount of stuff you can do from C code that extends the library and possibly even adds new built-in functionality without actually changing the language.
