your favorite programming language and why?

i'll start. right now i'm *loving* python/cython. in part i just love python's semantics. it's like writing poetry. i love declaring diddly-squat. i love that if i need to speed up a method i can first write it in python to get everything working together and then rewrite computation-intensive subroutines in C/C++. it's made me a more efficient coder and i can focus on solving big-picture problems instead of plugging memory leaks or chasing pointers. i know python is a scripting language and not a 'true' programming language, but it's a damn powerful scripting language, and i love it.

your turn.



inspired by the 'your favorite registrar and why?' thread.
