comment Do you think that GAE alone is enough to justify learning Python over Ruby?
I think you'll find that once you learn Python, you can learn Ruby fairly easily - they're in the same lineage.

comment What top companies look for in an Interview?
Interviewing is a difficult art for sure, and I don't claim to be an expert by any means. But in my case, I'm not trying to play a game of "gotcha!" - where I'm just waiting for someone to get something wrong. Instead, I'm probing their knowledge, trying to see how deep it is. Can the candidate easily explain how a hash table works, for example. It's usually pretty easy to see who ends up in the win column and who doesn't.

Agreed - you've got to have a feedback loop, always learning from your mistakes.
