«…Domain Knowledge…»

Probably very important. Many years ago my employer put me in an «airline environment». In this years there was only one german airline. I needed about 1/2 year to learn a little bit of their technical language. It was pain in the ass. And to be honest: I felt lost. And by the way, I am of the opinion that Python was only invented to be teached easy. Best regards, Karl

    Karl, I agree totally. I had to quickly learn the language of wastewater treatment plants in order to write a Fortran code to suggest operating changes based on the latest lab results. This included learning the GE Timesharing system. Other projects required picking up Honeywell DDP-516 assembly language.
