Overheard at PyCon
Overheard at PyCon:
- James Tauber: "Reinventing the wheel is great if you’re trying to learn more about wheels."
- Titus Brown: "I don’t do test driven development. I do stupidity driven testing… I wait until I do something stupid, and then write tests to avoid doing it again."
- Simon Burton (introducing RPython): "Who here would like your Python code to run thirty to forty times faster? [Raised hands, applause]. Well, it’s not going to happen."
- Simon Burton (a few moments later): "You can either take drugs of try RPython."
