One thing the Perl community does that I really enjoy is they "play golf";
that is, they try to solve a programming challenge in the fewest characters
possible.  It leads to some really bazaar code but is a great way to learn
the intricacies of the language.  Python does not lend itself to "golf" as
well as Perl.
