For real this time, get your butt off Python 2: No updates, no nothing after 1 January 2020


Re: Java popular ?

Oh well. There are probably two types of programmers: Those who made a lot of money with Java and suffer from stockholm syndrome. And those who hate Java with a passion..

All jokes aside, there aren't too many large scale industry languages out there. We will see wether Oracle's pricing policy was a good idea or not. And of course today we can use languages like Kotlin or Scala (or Clojure if you are a real 1337 haxx0r) which are much more pleasant and rewarding than Java. But there's still a metric crapton of Java legacy code out there so Java won't simply disappear over night.

Talking about legacy code.. No matter who hard Guido forces the Python 3 Meme, we will stand with Python 2 till the very end !!1!
