    Great Meetup once again -- and please feel to reach out to me if you have prior Perl experience and want to talk about what made you switch, and what the differences are. Thanks!

      I have prior Perl experience (5-10 years ago), and I now prefer Python. If I had to pick one reason why, it would be because Python feels easier to read. I know it is possible to write readable Perl, and obfuscate Python, but most of the time, Python (the language, the ecosystem, the culture) encourages readability more than Perl does.

    Great group, still looking for help connecting Django and dHTMLx grid controls. I'm 1/2 way there.
