Just out of curiosity but why are our webapps written in Python and
in Perl for example?
I have a feeling there is more Perl knowledge among infrastructure
specialists as there is Python.
Perl is great for your need today. Perl is not so great for you're third
level replacement that has to try and read and figure out what the heck
your "elegant" perl code is actually trying to do and adjust it for some
change. Historically it seems to many that python apps remain maintainable
over time, while perl apps have a tendency to not.
Of course, this is merely the opinion of me and my experiences, and by no
means the reason why we at large use python.
