Hello Richard and welcome.

Python has been my main "get things done" language for the last few years. 

In Python there's an initial "wtf?" we all have regarding indentation/whitespace 
and no semicolons etc but after a bit you get used to it and won't even notice 
or bother you. As you probably know there's ton of python resources on the web 
and libraries/projects for almost any area.
