What I Hate About Python

During an interview a while back, I was asked to name some things I hate about Python. For some reason, I choked and couldn’t think of a good answer (I kind of wanted to blame the interview process, but that’s a rant for another time).

Maybe I’ve just been programming in Python for too long, and that’s why I couldn’t think of something (or maybe I’m just a massive Python fanboy). On the other hand, I’ve been programming in JavaScript (which I generally like) for about as long, and I can think of at least a few things right off the top of my head (mostly related to weak typing).

I did a search to see what other people don’t like about Python to get some inspiration, but I didn’t come across anything I truly hate.

Conclusion

There isn’t one. I left some things out intentionally (various quirks). I probably forgot some things too.
