As far as not knowing how to program well, we choose a language that only two of us knew (C#) and the rest of the group had no problem learning it and contributing great code and testing.
Sorry I'm slightly drunk right meow but C# shouldn't be a stretch to 
learn for anyone with any java experience.  It's a pretty 
straightforward language that is far superior to any other offering out 
there.  Real computer scientists should also be able to read a spec and 
pick up a language.


NOTE: I'm not endorsing the use of Microshaft's .NET...it's a terrible 
framework (look at their collection classes....jesus!) and it typically 
builds pretty terrible apps.  Java's API + the vibrant open source 
community supporting it is *the way* to create a scalable enterprise 
(wow buzzwordz) app.
