    When faced with a wall of errors and no hope to fix them, remember the following "Programs always do what you tell them to, and seldom what you want them to, but eventually you'll run out of things that can go wrong and it'll just work. and that's the secret to good programming."

It's odd many coders are rooting for a particular language without even asking:  Most productive for what? And how do you measure that productivity?


I think this has been said many times, but its worth hammering it home.


Python, yes its productive for many things; useless if you are creating an O/S in which its probably less productive.


I think the more libraries that a particular language has, generally the more productive it is (assuming like python the modules intergrate nicely, unlike say perl.) 


Also I find people mistake speed for productivity as well. What's the point of writing 10 components in a day, if all 10 are useless, or to slow. Sometimes you need spend time on the core code and make sure that's correct.
