An article in May's "Linux Journal" mentions a site called "Software
Carpentry" http://software-carpentry.org/about/ninety-second-pitch/ which
aims to teach scientists how to program.

A noble aim, but they spoil it by picking Python as the language of
instruction. How can we show them the error of their ways, apart from
referencing the role of Perl in bioinformatics?
