Do Not Learn Ruby, Python or Perl

It started with the article titled Do Not Learn Ruby, after which came a response titled Do Not Learn Perl, and then came Do Not Learn Python.

Why shouldn’t you learn these languages? Because they’ll get under your skin. You’ll start to loathe whatever other programming language you’re working on, especially if it’s statically compiled. You’ll start thinking it’s impossible for you to keep using the technology you’re currently using at work.

The moral of the story: don’t use these languages!

Links to both Perl and Python articles are missing. Did you convert?

Christopher Simons: No, I didn’t convert — it’s just that Do Not Learn Python and Do Not Learn Perl seems to have been removed from the site on which they lived.
