Musings

Every individual lives in their own world and so do I, there as as many worlds as there are living beings on this earth (and beyond?). We humans interact with each other and with the worldly objects at different levels. Those levels or what I call as ‘circles’ is the only scope that we understand of each other or about the objects, however our expectations and desires assume we perceive everything the same way which is often the cause for all sorts of problems and misunderstanding. Once we realize that my world and your world are different, life becomes a lot easier and we start communicating in a more effective way.

The Zen of Python

>>> import this

The Zen of Python, by Tim Peters

  1. Beautiful is better than ugly.
  2. Explicit is better than implicit.
  3. Simple is better than complex.
  4. Complex is better than complicated.
  5. Flat is better than nested.
  6. Sparse is better than dense.
  7. Readability counts.
  8. Special cases aren’t special enough to break the rules.
  9. Although practicality beats purity.
  10. Errors should never pass silently.
  11. Unless explicitly silenced.
  12. In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
  13. There should be one– and preferably only one –obvious way to do it.
  14. Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you’re Dutch.
  15. Now is better than never.
  16. Although never is often better than right now.
  17. If the implementation is hard to explain, it’s a bad idea.
  18. If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.
  19. Namespaces are one honking great idea — let’s do more of those!
