Economics Nobel laureate Paul Romer is a Python programming convert — Quartz
"Romer believes that open-source notebooks are the way forward for sharing research. He believes they support integrity, while proprietary software encourage secrecy. “The more I learn about proprietary software, the more I worry that objective truth might perish from the earth,” he wrote."

One Chart, Twelve Charting Libraries · Lisa Charlotte Rost
May 2016 - Charting libraries: I want to understand their differences and how easy it is to learn them. To do so, I created the same bubble chart with twelve different frameworks. The chart and the underlying dataset I’ll use for that experiment are explained in the last post, “One Chart, Twelve Tools”.

Templating - Python Wiki
There are many, many different HTML/XML templating packages and modules for Python that provide different feature sets and syntaxes. These libraries usually assume that you know how to write HTML or XML.

The number of templating engines is so great because the mechanisms involved are pretty easy to write in Python, at least for a fairly basic template engine; this recipe from the Python Cookbook shows how easy it is.

On meta-design and algorithmic design systems
"So what is meta-design? In a traditional design practice, the designer works directly on a design product. Be it a logo, website, or a set of posters, the designer is the instrument to produce the final artifact. A meta-designer works to distill this instrumentation into a design system, often written in software, that can create the final artifact. Instead of drawing it manually, she is programming the system to draw it."

Why Apple's Swift Language Will Instantly Remake Computer Programming | WIRED
July 2014 - "The language is called Swift, and on June 2, Apple released a test version to coders outside the company, billing it as a faster and more effective means of building software apps for iPhones, iPads, and Macs."

"When it’s officially released this fall, it could achieve mass adoption with unprecedented speed, surpassing even the uptake of Sun Microsystems’ Java programming language and Microsoft’s C# in the late 1990s and early 2000s."

Journalist Q&A: Zach Seward, Quartz | PR Week
"All members of the Things Team have the title reporter. Their backgrounds are in areas such as data, design, and programming. They do their own projects that require programming, need to be built in some way, or include heavy data analysis. They collaborate with other reporters in the newsroom on those projects. For example, a reporter may come across a great data set, but might need help figuring out what to do with it."
