My notes from P. Büchelr’s presentation at EuroPython 2013.
Car analogy - people who go to BMW will get different quality than Fiat. Same with software, but not appreciated.
Right mix of people important. Pointless to have lots of all-stars ‘cause they will all have their own idea of how it should be done.
Why Python? Too many languages = uncomfortably hot. Python is platform independent, has big community, good traction/adoption/future plans, good learning curve
