fencepost comments on “Ask HN: Forced to choose Python”

Who’s in charge of the project? In a corporate environment I’d say that this is a project management failure and bodes ill for the project; if you’re a startup team then this is also a problem you need to address now or you risk the team splintering.

Seems to me that the language choice should be at least partially driven by your problem space and relevant libraries and tools. The people involved can put together their reasons for their preferences, but someone’s going to need to be the decision maker.
