Hello everyone,

I holding an experience in web, worked on web frameworks like Spring, Struts and Drupal.
I didn't write any code in python and not even around suggest to use python for any particular job?

So, my basic question is, When should you use Python in the Real World?

Thanks,


Saifuddin..

I guess the answer to that question should be "when appropriate". I know of one local billion-dollar company that has all their critical infrastructure, including their web site, implemented in Python. Personally, I use it to implement scripts that would be painful to write in Bash, but not worth the trouble of a full-blown Java application. So it is a tool with many uses. It is up to you to see where it fits in your personal toolbox.
