Discussion on: Why is your preferred programming language your go-to?

My go to is Python (specifically Python 2.7, which is problematic I know). The why is an odd mix of "it's a language I love" and "I know how to do so much in it that at this point I'm kind of held hostage by it".

I've been recently trying to make all the necessary changes to my work code bases so that we can start using Python 3, as well as spending all my free time learning Rust. Python may remain my go to but hopefully in time it'll be mostly glue for stuff I write in rust.
