This Mastery was about the Zen of Python, which was formulated by Tim Peters in 1999.
The Zen of Python is a collection of 19 „guiding principles“ for writing computer programs with Python.
It is also included as an Easter Egg in the Python interpreter and can be viewed by typing „import this“ and running the code.
The 19 directives are the following:
For me, „Complex is better than complicated„, „If the implementation is hard to explain, it’s a bad idea“ respectively „If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea“ are the most important.
To me, programming is not about finding the most complicated solution for a problem in order to impress someone with my programming skills, but about solving a given problem in the simplest or most efficient way.
