Hello Authors,
Python is considered to be easy language to learn than other languages but mainly its presence felt in startups companies,bigger organizations.(atleast in India!!) mainly doing administrative tasks. As majority of IT business world is divided into J2EE/MS/and some % of LAMP, what are the areas where languages like Python is going to excel?
The question non-IT management mainly comes with is "what is that <new language> offers which <Java/.NET> don't.

Hi Arjun,

For me the biggest advantage of Python over Java is development time. I had several years of Java experience when I first learned Python, but it took only a few weeks before my velocity in Python exceeded my velocity in Java, and now (about ten years later) I would guess that my velocity in Python is 10 times faster. Or more.

I don't want to start a programming language holy war, so I should say that my comments are based on my experience, and your mileage may vary!

Allen
