comment Python potential for science applications?
A follow up to this great answer, if you master algorithms, learning a new programming language is pretty simple and something you can do on the fly if you really need to. There's really no reason whatsoever to worry about language choices outside of "is this language (and its features) a good match for the problem I'm trying to solve?"

comment You're hired to fix a small bug for a security-intensive site. Looking at the code, it's filled with security holes. What do you do?
Either tell both, or tell the engineer first, and verify that bugs are being created and tracked in whatever system they use. If bugs aren't created, tell management.

No need for that, the problem, and priority, is the security flaws. Don't make this personal and go after somebody else. Fix the site, and train their people so the mistakes aren't repeated.
