re: What is Python used for? VIEW POST


Before data-science and deep-learning, Python was mainly used as scripting tool for little software (security, network, desktop tools) because sys-admin love it.
There is some implementation for scripting inside other apps (blender, postgresql) and to work with RaspberryPi or Arduino (because it's simpler to learn than C).

I think Go and Rust will replace old python usages for sysadmin tools, Django is nice but NodeJs and PHP will stay the favourites. In future, top field will be data-science.
