Learning Python

[Today’s run: 7.25 miles]

Last week I saw reference to an online quiz/interview thing called Triplebyte so I decided to give it a shot.

I did the quiz part and the thing reported that I did well.  I’m skeptical.  But, they wanted me to sign up for an interview time.  So I have an interview coming up next Saturday at 9 am.

They give some description of the interview.  Part of it is debugging a program.  And they give a list of programming languages from which you can choose.

I’ve been using something called Perl for most of my projects in the last 20 years. Perl wasn’t on the list.  I used to know ‘C’ pretty well.  C wasn’t on the list either.  I’ve done some C++ and some Java.  C++ and Java were on there. But doing anything with them these days means I’d have to learn an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) which I don’t really want to take the time to do right now.  Another Perl-like language was on the list called Python.

I’ve taken a half hearted run at Python a couple of times.  It seemed like a waste of time since I didn’t want to expand the already long list of technologies I’m supposed to know for my job.  But now I’ve been reading about Python for this interview.  If I don’t get anything else out of it, maybe I can learn Python.

p.s.

I’m reading more on the Triplebyte website.  It looks like they only do staffing of high-tech start-ups in The Bay.
