Ouch, python, the wrong scripting language to begin with in the industry. I wrote intentionally "scripting language", because even if Python is a good OOP abstract programming language, it is only remembered as a simple scripting language by most employer. It is widely used in the graphic and movie industry, for automation of CGI processes, like for example Maya or Blender. And there are some academic faculties who hires python developers.
My advice: learn Java.
Don't say that you hate Java, its THE industry standard and this help you to get a job.
Regarding the word "standard", its just a word. It always depends where you search for a job.
We’re a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
