You could make a mess of any programming language, and Python is not an exception. The only place Python helps is when you are working with total noobs, I mean the kind of people who come out of the programming 101 class and don't know how to indent code.

On the other hand a lot of people chose to learn a technology purely because its easy to get a job if you do do so.

I think you shouldn't worry much about a programming language at all. Though I agree a few tools make software development easy. I've seen negative perceptions about Perl too, Python gets selected as an obvious choice as it largely(at least syntactically) resembles untyped Java. And the relatively easy barrier to entry means anybody can learn and use it.

In just a few years you will see too much bad Python code, written by too many Python programmers. And then Python too shall become a must die tool

I agree with you that Perl needs a total overhaul, I think that is what Perl 6 is working on. Though its a little late, I think its worth the wait.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
