What Programming Languages Should You Learn Next?

theNeophile Re:Python? (759 comments)

I really need to bookmark this comment so I can come back to it next time I use a Python program. I have yet to encounter a single piece of nontrivial Python code that actually worked as its author claimed and didn't require debugging before actually being used. It is quite possibly the worst mainstream language, since it has half-arsed support for a load of different paradigms and yet manages to fail to support any of them well. On the plus side, most of the old VB programmers have migrated to Python, and it's probably a step up for them...
Well, there's your problem.
