Alright! Alright! Alright!

So recently I was at a tech conference where the guest speaker who shall not be named, introduced the idea of developing mobile apps using the Python Programming Language. At first I thought he was just trolling the audience, but after couple slides of his presentation, I was totally, completely, and utterly blown away. For all those not familiar with computer programming languages, I’ll sum up Python as such: The Easiest and The Most Efficient High Level Programming Language In The History of Computer Programming. OK, maybe that might be an exaggeration but you get the point. Python is super easy to learn and boasts an open-source library of user created packages that is second to none. The fact that one is now able to create mobile apps (iOS and Android) using Python is just freakin awesome.

I must admit though, I’m a bit embarrassed as despite being an App Developer for almost 5+ years, I wasn’t aware of the fact that there are tools out there that convert Python code to native source codes for various platform – which includes iOS and Android. One such popular tool is PyMob.

With that said, building apps using languages other than the ones preferred by the Device/OS makers is a recipe for disaster. For more information about the Pros and Cons of PyMob, I highly recommend this discussion board tread:
