|I'm in the interesting position of setting up a team from scratch: hiring the first software developers in a well-funded company. There is a team of data scientists who have been creating models in Python (which end up as docker images). I have no legacy code of any importance for all the surrounding code (UI, data fetching, data storage, etc.) that I need to support or maintain.|
The guidance I'm getting from the CEO is that he wants to build a cutting-edge, next-generation company. There's budget to hire 10-20 tech staff.
I'm comfortable enough in all three languages (and others besides).
I don't want this to turn into a flamewar: the main criteria I care about are:
1. Long-term supportability
2. Bugginess of typical code generated in the language.
3. Availability of developers
What are your thoughts?
