The Interview

We at Evrone have done custom development for many years, and we try to organize professional communities in Russia, like a community for Ruby developers, for Python developers. Your podcasts are famous in Russia. So, first of all, from the Russian Python community, thank you for your hard work.

And our first question is: If Python didn't exist, which language would you choose to work with instead?

Michael: It's a good question. Python has been around for a really long time, 30+ years, which I think is surprising in itself. I came from a C++ background, that's where I did my first programming. I still have love for those C-style languages, and I've thought about what language I would choose if Python weren't there. I think it probably would be one of the C languages. Probably C#. I actually like C# a lot. I think it's a really pretty language. I like Swift as a language, but I don't find the ecosystem to be as nice. I don't find the base class libraries to be nearly as supportive and clean and so on. I've done a lot of JavaScript. JavaScript is not what I would want to do more of. I don't completely hate JavaScript, but it's not my favorite thing. So I'm going to go with C#. Especially now that it's cross-platform. But I'm going to stick with Python while I can. I don't think it's going anywhere.

We also want to thank our colleague, Nikolai Rubanov from Selectel, for assisting with the questions for this ​interview.
