General Development All the data stored in a Python program is built around the concept of an object. Objects include fundamental data types such as numbers, strings, lists, and dictionaries. It's also possible to create user-defined objects in the form of classes or extension types. This chapter describes the Python object model and provides an overview of the built-in data types.

its bad because programmers are human and humans make mistakes or oversights and get tired. convenience can be provided by IDEs like eclipse and netbeans... as they already do for Java.

I don't see Java as successful as Python, with all its conveniences. Even C with its global namespace achieved great things, more than Java did. You know, academic languages are just for teaching. Real world requires Perl, Python, C, C++ and PHP.

Come on... I don't really like Java and all but, saying that it is just a language for "teaching" and that the "real world" doesn't use it is a little naive, at best.

The enterprise world has its head sunk on Java for some time now... at least on my part of the world.

just my R$0,02 (Two cents of 'Real')

"Real world requires Perl, Python, C, C++ and PHP."

What part of the world do you live in? Pretty much every IT department in the world worth their salt uses either C++, Java or .Net (ColdFusion has a huge presense as well) for application development. PHP is a complete joke outside of building small hobbyish websites. You might see a bit of Python/Perl for gluing stuff together, but I've only seen it used in edge cases. C is only used for OS/driver development. Welcome to the real world.
