comment Are programming books in other languages useful for Python?
I agree, many concepts transcend languages and that it can be helpful to see how things are done in other languages. I recently started learning C/C++. While it added to my depth of general programming, I can't say it made me a better Python programmer. Even though there's value learning something else one might make the "jack of all trades, master of none" argument, I'm better off skipping the C and focusing on Python in order to write higher quality code. As you say, one can learn syntax in months, but it takes years to master. At what point should one branch out into other languages?

comment What technologies are needed to be a freelance web developer / designer targeting small businesses?
I agree. Mentally I would rank the skill set (1) WordPress/CMS, (2) online shopping carts, (3) web apps. This also mirrors my experience that most small businesses need increased sales/marketing efforts.
