    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.
