Ron Stephens has been programming python as a hobbyist for the last 10 years. He's a technologist, hobbyist, poet, and manager at a firm that makes hardware for satellites. He is the host of the python411 podcast and the awaretek podcast. He has tried many different languages including Perl, Ruby, Java, and Python.
During his exploration of programming languages, he has read and recommends:
- The Pickaxe Book – Programming Ruby: The Pragmatic Programmers' Guide, Second Edition
- The Camel Book – Programming Perl (3rd Edition)
- A book called something like ‘Hacker Revolutionaries.' I can't find it. Could someone give a link if you know where to get it?
When asked about what philosophies, approaches, and principles python developers adhere to he mentioned the Zen of Python.
