General Development Fatal Exception's Neil McAllister gets into the holiday spirit with a post that gives thanks to technical advances for developers, including open source tools, modern IDEs, and distributed version control. 'I'm old enough to remember when performance-critical routines meant hand-coded assembly language and sometimes even keying in machine code as hexadecimal digits. We've come a long way since those bad old days, and not surprisingly we owe a lot of our progress to technology. So for this Thanksgiving, here are just a few of the modern advances for which I, as a developer, give thanks.' What are you giving thanks to?

When I started getting into programming it was C or C++ or Java.

I never got much enjoyment out of anything until I started using python in my first university programming course.

Python is fun to use, easy to read and has been able to do everything I've thrown at it over the years.

I wouldn't be doing any programming if it wasn't for Python. ;)
