|+# Python for Ruby Programmers|
|+## by Mike Leone|
|+You've probably heard of Python, the _other_ popular, dynamic, multi-paradigm|
|+programming language. It occupies much of the same space as Ruby, has many|
|+similar language features, and the syntax even looks pretty similar. But what|
|+are the specific strengths and weaknesses of Python when compared to Ruby? What|
|+use cases are conducive to one language versus the other?|
|+In this talk, we look at similarities and differences in the design of each|
|+language, exploring how they affect application development and maintenance.|
|+Later, we look at some specific problem domains (web development, scientific|
|+programming, etc) and show how much traction each language has for those|
|+### Additional Notes|
|+In this talk, I'll show you that (a) jumping between Ruby and Python is very|
|+easy, and that (b) learning Python will make you a better Ruby Programmer.|
|+This is a new version of my "Python for Ruby Programmers" talk. It was first|
|+presented at Los Angeles RubyConf 2013, and it made the front page of Hacker|
|+News. I received lots of useful feedback from that; this version features|
|+better material for advanced programmers and better idiomatic code samples.|
