That's right, another blog from another developer. This particular developer happens to be a Pythonista working on the TurboGears project (amongst far too many others).
I've dealt with (in varying degrees), CVS, Subversion, Mercurial, Make, C, C++, Perl, PHP, Python, Java, HTML, CSS... the list goes on and on, as it does for so many of us.
We each have our own views on all of these technologies, how to use them, what makes them wonderful, and what makes them awful.
Welcome to mine.
