We have a decade of experience hosting and scaling complex Python web applications.
Here at EarlyDog, we have Python in our blood. Internally, we use primarily Python and Go.
We also love Python’s philosophy and have seen the benefits of including much of Python’s philosophy in our own culture.
Here are some of our favorites from the Zen of Python, the official set of guiding principles for the design of the Python language:
- Explicit is better than implicit.
- Simple is better than complex.
- Complex is better than complicated.
- Special cases aren’t special enough to break the rules.
- Although practicality beats purity.
- There should be one–and preferably only one–obvious way to do it.
- Now is better than never.
- Although never is often better than right now.
- If the implementation is hard to explain, it’s a bad idea.
- If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.
