How to Make Mistakes in Python? (Mike Pirnat)

Even the finest programmers occasionally make errors, and veteran programmer Mike Pirnat has done so over the course of more than 15 years of working with Python. Some of them were easy and amusing, while others were embarrassing and outright expensive.

In this O'Reilly report, he analyzes some of his most egregious mistakes, exposing their root causes layer by layer.

For instance, installing any intriguing-looking third-party program could result in a jumbled mess where nothing functions properly. Alternatively, you may create a test that manages to corrupt the build. Mike has accomplished both and much more. You'll be free to make truly important mistakes—the ones that improve the art of programming—by staying away from these errors.

  • Setup: the ills of an incautiously prepared environment
  • Silly things: trivial mistakes that waste a disproportionate amount of energy
  • Style: poor stylistic decisions that impede readability
  • Structure: assembling code in ways that make change more difficult
  • Surprises: those shocking mysteries that only time can turn from OMG to LOL
