Python is a programming language allowing different programming paradigms. One has the choice between object oriented, aspect oriented and functional programming.
In the German Linux-Magazin one finds an article about functional programming. This article gives a quick in-depth introduction to the topic.
Mark Curphey writes in his blog about how he learned Python in a week.
Cython is a language that makes writing C extensions for the Python language as easy as Python itself.
The Cython language is very close to the Python language, but Cython additionally supports calling C functions and declaring C types on variables and class attributes. This allows the compiler to generate very efficient C code from Cython code.
This makes Cython the ideal language for wrapping external C libraries, and for fast C modules that speed up the execution of Python code.
