Is True true? : A mini-venture into Python & Ruby truth testing
Review of truth testing in Python and Ruby. If "Explicit is better than Implicit" then why does Python decide that values like empty sequences are "falsey"? How is it that Ruby only defines false and nil as false values, isn't this more explicit?
Highlight how languages embed their own philosophies of what is correct and true with surprising overlaps and at times odd contradictions.
