but a few points:
Why Would We Need Python?
If you are completely satisfied with how the software in your
organization is created and maintained, then you probably don't need
Python. But if you have a backlog of requests, bug-ridden or
inflexible applications, stressed-out developers or frustrated users,
then maybe a contributing factor is your development tool. Python can
help you increase your development speed, power and flexibility
the 'bug-ridden' argument I disagree with. Just because your software
is written in python does not mean its going to be bug free. Bugs are
also a function of the complexity of the application logic.
AND... like pasokan says "choose your tool based on the
application. dont decide the language first". The problem is not
always a nail... :)
