Having used Python for about 6 months solid I think it should be renamed "Tada"!

After spending many years with C, VB6 and various other languages I came to Python about two years ago. Being self taught I did struggle with some areas where many books are weak and self learning is a one way process you cannot ask questions. One of my biggest issues was dictionaries and once I got my head around them the fact they were not sorted (a major issue in my view).

However it is a powerful high level language and like SQL Server under Linux I am happy to welcome it! Smile

Nice. I started learning Python but then needed to do more C# for work so I dove into that. This looks like a good reason to pick back up with the Python learning path.

I watch an hour of yesterday's of yesterday's Microsoft Data Amp event. I saw the announcement that Python would be a part of SQL Server. That surprised me. I figured that if they were going to include any language it would be C#. But after thinking about it for a while I began to see the wisdom of that move. I love C#. I work in it every day. However, ignoring for the moment the OO nature of C#, it uses a procedural approach to software. I haven't any experience with Python, but I understand it to be more dynamic/functional in its approach. That's more in keeping with T-SQL anyway. So Python is a better fit for SQL Server than C# would have been, anyway.

Kindest Regards,Rod

Not to change the topic, I have tried to help my daughter with learning Python, but is F# usable in SQL Server?

Cool

F# is .NET's bass-turd child. It needs a little more love and attention from Redmond to be on par with C#. It has a chance of being the best hybrid functional static language around.

As for Python, part of me is excited since it's one of the more productive languages around for data. I often thought that Microsoft should have used IronPython instead of PowerShell as the main OS scripting language. But I'm skeptical that I'll ever get to use Python it in SQL Server production because it's not .NET...

No F#, but sp_external_script has a @language param, so who knows.

I would have loved Python instead of PoSh. The whole REPL concept fits there perfectly. Sometimes I have both command lines open and I forget which one I'm in. Both have nice advantages.

As someone who has come from a background in open source, it is welcoming to see Python become available. I can't wait for it to be integrated into the Linux build of SQL Server
