"Why Python

"Ultimately, the reason these tutes are on Python is because Python rocks!!, and it rocks in so many ways:

"For a start, the Python language is extremely, sublimely beautiful. When I say beautiful, I don't mean in a La Giaconda sort of sense – although it's code indentation convention does make it visually attractive. Rather, I mean it in a Galois Theory sort of sense. That is, it has a beautiful simplicity and consistency from which comes a deep power (don't expect to understand the Galois Theory reference until you've made it to college – I think it is no co-incidence that Guido van Rossum was a mathematician). As you learn more about how Python does what it does you will constantly think how clever its creators were."
